Hello everybody,

I am trying to use the DSpace Import plugin from EPrints by giving a URL 
to the web interface. While the system import the record, the character 
sets seem to not be imported correctly. My import is performed from a 
Greek DSpace server, and a test record where should be imported is this: 

If you give the above URL into the DSpace import form, you'll see that 
the record is imported but the character set is messed up.

Thanks all for your help in advance,
