character encoding - mandrake 9.2

I'm having problems with language support. I want the os and all applications to use the language English, and also when i send emails, icq etc i want to use the right character encoding so that my (from Swedish language) looks correct for the reciever.
The default encoding i want to use is "Western European ISO 8859-15"

i have checked /etc/sysconfig/i18n and some other places. But i want to know the "correct way" of setting encoding and language to use in Mandrake 9.2 (Gnome 2.4).

You are doing it the correct way. You can also have per-user settings when you create a ~/.i18n file. Its contents override the settings in /etc/sysconfig/i18n
