Netscape expects the locale from X11R5.

You apparently have X11R6.

The /usr/lib/X11/nls was uuencoded and sent to the hackers/questions lists
by me, three times now.

You will find it in the list archives.

The "kit" I put together, including someone elses patches to 1.1.5 to
make it run there, is in one of these messages.

Maybe it is also on

Maybe Jordan has put it somewhere?

The location of this thing should be in the FAQ under "NETSCAPE".
