That doesn't work for me (Netscape Communicator 4.72 connecting to
Apache/1.3.14, both on (the same) SuSE Linux), and anyway it's not what
I want. My pages are for people who *don't* know German, but think about
learning it - they won't have "de" in their preferences, but I want to
show them the German interface (or Czech, but I don't suppose that
exists :-) ) rather than English...

Hmm, UserPreferences has a Preferred language selection, but it contains
only <Default> and English options... Does MoinMoin require some locale
support from the OS? I have a Czech Linux distribution forced to use
English - there isn't much German support (apart from Latin-2 fonts) my
machine provides...
