Hi Matthew,

I have just noticed the new start page has been released.

However, I see that the title is at least for the Catalan translation
is not being displayed correctly.

Although the text in the submitted translation was correctly encoded
in UTF-8, the published browser start page title shows some kind of
unreadable character (see the screenshot in the bug report mentioned
below). Having had a look at the HTML source, it seems that the
character is wrongly written there. Is the page really encoded in

I have also submitted a bug about this [1].

As translators are doing an extra effort to provide last-minute
translations to this page, it would be nice to have them correctly
published before release.

Also, is it really not possible to translate the "Search" string on
the search button?
