    http://www.apple.is/frettir/aqua/

    i found this while searching for aqua themes for os9. it appears to be a Norwegian (maybe) apple site. but it appears also to be showing how you can make os9 look like osx with themes i thought apple had banned. i cant find a norwegian translater on the net, most of the links on the home page seem to go to bulliten boards.

    This is NOT Italian. Notice that some of the character cannot be interpreted by your browser. From the .is tag I would be more inclined to think it as Isreal, but then again what do I know...

    Its not Noway - its Iceland - go to www.apple.com main page and down at the bottom it has a link to other apple sites around the world.

    www.apple.is is Iceland....Norway is www.apple.com/no


    Looking at that text how could you even think it was Italy???? Wow, that's scary, they don't teach other languages down there in Australia?

    It´s Icelandic

    Hey guys!
    That´s icelandic, and it seems to present upcoming
    features of Aqua (old page?!).
    The problems with icelandic is that it doesn´t contain
    any borrowed word from english (or other languages
    for that matter). They construct their own words
    instead. The english word computer is really funny
    in icelandic… Not to mention helicopter!!!
    For those who like vikings and that stuff; this is
    as close you can get to the viking´s original
    language! As a swede I can almost understand it…

    What do you mean? Or does IE not do everything? Wouldn't know... I haven't launched IE since upgrading to Jaguar (since Aug. 24) Use OmniWeb. It's having no trouble with it.

    I don't have a problem with any of the characters - I think - cause I don't know whether its right or wrong - but there certainly are plenty of accents and special characters showing in my version of IE.
