    Default Language (WinXP-Pro)

    I came across this in Office 2003, but it had an easy solution there.

    I am setting up a "vanilla" hardware install -- JUST the hardware settings with nothing else.

    I noticed in Outlook Express that in the "Send / International" Settings, it was set to "Baltic". Don't know how or why, but know that that ain't right. How'd it get set that way?

    If I change it, where do I do it that it will affect all programs? I'm not sure I see a place in the Control Panel. Am I missing something?

    Is it Western European, or Unicode (8?) that would serve me best? I occasionally use the

    Strange mysterious things happen from time to time. Don't worry - nothing serious with your installation. Baltic codepage is the same kind as Eastern European, but with different additional letters.

    This particular setting you are asking about has nothing to do with any program installed on your computer. Simply if you send a message from OE in German, Polish or Slovak language, some additional letters (as "umlauts") will appear wrong on your recipient's computer. All basic Latin letters, numbers and currency signs will be the same.

    Default setting is Western European (ISO) - you can change it, if you like.
