Hello Manuel,

Actually, the results are in german because your browser is set up to
prefer german among the various languages the CSS validator supports,
but I digress from the ponit of your message.

I believe the cause of the problem is a discrepancy in the encodings
used. I remember Yves worked on this a while ago, and I will check with
him. In the meantime, since I recall that part of the solution was to
recode the properties files in utf-8, I have done so for the properties
in german (in CVS, not yet on the validation service), and will followup
on the general encoding issue.

Thanks for your patience.
