Help needed for start page

Hi David and Matthew,

The problem is in the "localize.sh" script. It seems that po2html does
not manage correctly the accents in the po file. A work-around is the
usage of HTML codes for special characters [1] in the .po file instead
of the utf-8 encoded characters (e.g. "Páxina" instead of "Páxina").

Matthew: I am attaching the corrected Galician translation (gl.po with
HTML codes). I have also checked the http://start.ubuntu.com/8.10/ page,
and the Galician version is not working at all... Am I being very
impatient or is there any problem? Thanks!

Kind regards,
     Felipe.
