nope, none of the translated templates load, I referenced archtoc.html just
for an example.  The permissions are identical to all others.  Even stranger
is that I've just tried moving "en" to "en.bak" and linking am to en. Restarted
everthing, changed web browsers, and still no change!

I went with the default installation options, is /usr/local/mailman/templates
the right directory to be working in??  Or does mailman use another directory
at run time?

I checked Serbian, the BOM is present only sometimes.  I did add it to
some files and no change.

Ah... that makes more sense, thanks for the clarification.

thanks again,
