Question /etc/TIMEZONE


I was having a font problem while running xclock:

(Warning: Missing charsets in String to FontSet conversion)

so I edited the /etc/TIMEZONE and switched it from UTF-8 to en_US.ISO8859-1. Then reboot.

Everything works great now, but I was wondering if this would cause problems somewhere else on the system? I'm not really familiar with this folder or the en_US file. Or Solaris, for that matter.

Thanks )

It will be fine - shouldn't effect anything in a negative way
