    The actual language delivered is negotiated between your browser and the server; your browser sends its preferences and the server decides which version or language to send based on your preferences, and what versions of the document are available.

    In IE go to Tools or View or Extras -> Internet Options -> (General) Languages to change it for your specific browser so I am not sure if this will implement it system wide. Id try searching to see if you can find something. I'll do the same and if I find something I will let you know


    You can also try issuing this command from your webservers terminal because it changed all my default languages

    well first of all thx

    and just to give u more info .. i did put in my PHP pages in the meta tags the right encoding charset which is windows-1256 .. i want ANY USER who enters my website to view my pages like they should be .. not only me .. so i dont think its something that got to do with my IE .. its something maybe with the webserver ( apache ) .. i really dunno
