English term or phrase: QUESTION - GLOSSARY- POLISH FONTS
When entering words into my glossary should I code for Polish fonts. If the answer is yes what coding system should I use iso or windows. I think it would be very helpfull for people to see the proper Polish spelling of a particular word.

Explanation:
Thanks for bringing this up and thanks to those who have so far participated in the discussion (see URL: http://www.proz.com/?sp=h&id=92344&gr=y&pwd=WCYE&l=eng)

The problem remains because so many Glossary items have already been encoded with no Polish characters at all (mea culpa!), or, from what I hear, using different systems, although, as Krzysztof said, THE standard is ISO 8859-2.

Personally, for what has already been done, when I search the Glossary, when in doubt, I search it twice, i.e. with and without Polish characters (which is, indeed, a shame). ProZ has no policy and remains neutral, so it would be up to us to comply with what Krzysztof suggested above. Is this feasible?

Explanation:
Its generally the technical problem of web browser setting during sending the mail or messages.
In my opinion the best solution is to check the settings eg. menu View/Encoding and set the proper encoding.

But the most important is the consequence in encoding. If warious pages or messages on the same service are encoded in diffrent way it means trouble with right display.
