I tried it the canonical way, the html output works fine but the
generation of the mini panels does not show the correct umlaut values.

Here is my .htaccess file in


<Files smokeping.cgi>
        SetEnv LANG=en_us.UTF-8

I tried with the full filename too, restarted apache and smokeping to no

Would you mind to show us the relevant part of your .htaccess file?
