Do you get the same issues when displaying rt3.bestpractical.com?

No. Even stranger,… when I change the Text Encoding in the browser, The
rt3.bestpractical.com page REMAINS in english !

With my setup, my page is redrawn trying to render the Text Encoding which
I choose.

I can try to update perl modules, maybe an old module from a local
European mirror.
I reconfigured my perl CPAN to use the main perl CPAN site only.

How do you update in bulk all the installed module in perl ?
(searched CPAN and perl, but no clear pointers on this matter).

Any pointers appreciated.

Robert,
I had the same problem - but after installing
Locale::Maketext-1.04, 1.03 was still installed - and included earlier by
Perl! What does:
perl -e 'use Locale::Maketext; print $Locale::Maketext::VERSION;'
tell you?

Indeed, this command gives me version 1.03.
That explains alot !

perl -V will tell you the layout of your @INC module search path:

@INC:
/usr/local/lib/perl5/5.8.0/sun4-solaris
/usr/local/lib/perl5/5.8.0
/usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.0/sun4-solaris
/usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.0
/usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl

Exactly the same in my perl install.

I had to:

cd /usr/local/perl5
find . -name ‘Maketext*’
./5.8.0/Locale/Maketext.pm
./5.8.0/Locale/Maketext.pod
./5.8.0/Locale/Maketext
./site_perl/5.8.0/sun4-solaris/auto/Locale/Maketext
./site_perl/5.8.0/Locale/Maketext
./site_perl/5.8.0/Locale/Maketext.pod
./site_perl/5.8.0/Locale/Maketext.pm

and then remove the 5.8.0/Locale/Maketext files (where version 1.03 lived).
This fixed my problem. And then the restart of Apache to ensure it didn’t
have Locale::Maketext cached.

Yes, I removed all this, reinstalled Locale::Maketext from the tarball Sean M Burke send me,
(also reinstalled Locale::Maketext::Fuzzy and Locale::Maketext::Lexicon for good measure)
restarted apache, and… presto, it works…
English Locale in Safari.

Case closed

The big issue is that Locale::Maketext 1.03 doesn’t get replaced when installing version 1.04
