I am late in answering this as well it seems. :)

Do so.

WE have so far made no attempt at supporting hrf:s not conforming with
HT:s hrf:s. Sorry, but that's the way it is. When we have fully converted
from hrf:s to xml:s, we will provide a hrf to xml convertor and then we
might try to support other hrf:s, but not right now.

ISO-8859-1 or ISO-8859-15 for now, until we use unicode internally, then I
will convert the translations to use UTF-8 too.

Winger appears twice, because there are two different winger attributes,
one his winger ability, then his assessed winger value. Sorry about this,
but it'll stay this way for now.

It's the internal hrf name that is used. Preferences->Player lists shuold
probably go away at some point and only be configurable (and better too)
from the player list page (through edit columns).

Correct. Now fixed.

I've made this to work better and should now be translatable.

It's from empty bitmaps. I know of this and will fix it sometime. :)

Are you referring to the levels in Italian or the English here?

There are one extra level in Swedish and this is a fix for that.

Accumulated profit, i.e. the sum of all profit.

Yes, of course.

I will change that real soon now. :)

Sometime soon. There will be a rc2 first though.
