Your correct, the -1 was a typo on my part that was supposed to be -i,
and the language code was altogether wrong.

Can you elaborate? Right now all Mailman messages are sent using
us-ascii. If iso-8859-8 (or iso-8859-8-i) are recognized charsets, and
the DEFAULT_SERVER_LANGUAGE = 'iw' how to I tell Mailman to use
iso-8859-8-1 instead of us-ascii.

Thank you for your help.
