      Description

      The finnish localeformat for date and time are not what are commonly used here in Finland. Separating dates with "/" and indicating am/pm are not the way to go.

      This is the set I am constantly replacing the defaults with (using fin-FI@exove.ini):

      [DateTime]
      TimeFormat=%H:%i:%s
      ShortTimeFormat=%H:%i
      DateFormat=%l %j. %F %Y
      ShortDateFormat=%j.%n.%Y
      DateTimeFormat=%l %j. %F %Y %H:%i:%s
      ShortDateTimeFormat=%j.%n.%Y %H:%i
      MondayFirst=yes

        Should preferred charset be iso-8859-1 or utf-8?

        Seems like it is iso-8859-1 in norwegian too. If there is no need to touch it in norwegian, there should be no need to touch it in finnish either. Not sure where this setting is used. If anywhere.

        ISO-8859-1 used to be used on websites, but now pretty much everything is UTF-8.
