Description Milos R 2006-05-30 14:41:25 UTC
A Wiktionarian has sent me a screenshot of the Serbian Wiktionary (cf 
The majority of ALL pages is displayed with Chinese (?) characters althoug they are 
written with cyrillic letters. 
Usually not the contents of the pages themselves are displayed wrong but text from the 
MediaWiki namespace, and titles and similar things as well. Other Wiktionaries that 
also use the cyrillic script are displayed rightly.
He uses Internet Explorer 6 on Windows XP Professional.

Many thanks in advance.

Well, it seems as though he selected the Chinese interface in the preferences.

Poking this as an invalid. If you can confirm the user has *not* managed to select 
chinese in the user preferences, we'll need the username to check his options.

Comment 3 Milos R 2006-05-31 12:29:27 UTC
Well, I've forgotten to say that he had not got an account, so that he had not the 
option to change something in the user preferences. 

However, he made an account and everything is well.

Thank you.
