[TYPO3] problem with greek characters

Dear all,

Firstly I do not have much experience working with Typo3. In fact I'm trying
to develop my first site.

I worked with templates and extensions and all went well.

But when I tried to write content in greek language (because it will be the
main language for the sites I'm going to develop) I started having problems.

I tried most of the proposed solutions especially those concerning UTF-8,
but there is something really wrong with UTF-8 and the greek language.
If you try for to view a page written in greek, for example www.in.gr (the
most common greek portal) and try to change the encoding to UTF-8 you cannot
read a thing.

I wonder if there is a way to use iso-8859-7 character. My problem is that
when I change typo3 to use this character set it converts all the characters
into question marks (?).

The character set used in mySQl tables is "greek"

I have to mention that my Operating system is Win XP and  web server
(I agree that it is a weird combination). This environment is for
purposes only.

Thanks in advance
