So I added the lines:
def _(s):
    return s
add_language('de',    _('German'),       'iso-8859-15')
                                          if I set utf-8 here, I get
                                          horrible font problems, must
                                          figure out, why...
del _

and also:

to mm_cfg.py

but that didn't do the trick.

In the html-pages of the archive there is still the html-meta tag:
<META http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">

and so the content is not displayed correctly...

Best regards Jan
