thanks for another great classic.
have this on vhs, but I'm sure this'll look a lot better.

I hope you won't mind my repeating a comment to your "La Belle et la bĂȘte" post, but I cannot be sure you got the original since there was no response to it.

"...I am having a problem with this movie (La Belle et la BĂȘte) - a character you use in the title is not "readable" by winRAR (3.7)so I can neither play it, move it, or even rename it within the rar.
can you either tell me how to overcome this limitation, or rename the movie and re-rar+upload them again?
would prefer a solution though, thanks either way, and again for your site."

I will find my backup files and find out what is going on, but when i checked them before uploading, everything was OK

'elo, thanks Just.
it's the first 'e' character in the word "Bete" with the thingy on the bottom - apparently a common enough letter in some parts of Europe. I've had the same problem before with a couple album downloads from yonder way. :- )
my windows xp (sp2) does not support it. I suppose users of macs and linux systems might not have a problem with it, but I'd be surprised to be the only windows user to have this problem.
the solution is likely a need to install a character set or language pack, but I don't know what exactly, or how to find out.
if you have any idea, please let me know - thanks very much again.

I got my backup files and sucessfully extracted them so the problem may be with language pack , the movie is French, so that may be the solution to your problem, but I am no expert on this field, sorry, try avoid posting these "strange" letters in files in future

Try install that language pack using Office instalation CD ( you have to open file with a text, switch on grammar checking and set the language to French, and when it ask you to install it, just provide Office CD, I think that is the way, but remember I am not that sure aboout that, just my guess
