Hmmm, I just regenerated the archives, and the table of contents page
looks the same.  According to the html header, the page is using
charset utf-8, so the text is just a lot of symbols.  The main list
info page has cyrillic characters, but no charset specified in the
html.  I think what this particular list manager wants is for the
archive page to show cyrillic characters - is that possible?

I'm not entirely sure which language he has selected because
everything is in the other language (even the output of
bin/config_list?), but if I'm reading the cyrillic right then it might
be Ukrainian.
