hi roman

I am sending this to the developers list because I dont know the answers to these questions, and someone else may have some idea.

For point 1, have you tried exporting using gs version 2.39? mgpp didn't work properly under windows in earlier versions.

For point 3, I haven't been able to try using IE 5.0 - what problems are you experiencing with that browser? is it the same as before, that non latin characters aren't being encoded properly?

I hope that someone else can help you more,
Katherine
