to check if setlocale (LC_ALL,"hebrew") works i tried printing the date in hebrew as well.
the problem is wierd.
the date is in hebrew, but regex still having problems with the hebrew.
\w that suppose if the text contains legal chars (and _) works perfectly with english but makes problems with hebrew.
if i ain't using setlocale he thinks that "?" is not a char.
if i do use setlocale he thinks that about all the hebrew letters.

Reproduce code:
setlocale (LC_ALL,"hebrew");
$long_date = strftime("%A, %d %B %Y");
echo $long_date . "<br />";
$str = "?????";
   if (preg_match('/[^\w\s\-\.\@]/i',$str)) {
      print "wrong!";

Expected result:
??? ?????, 01 ???? 2004

Actual result:
??? ?????, 01 ???? 2004

What does the call to setlocale() return? Was the locale sucesfully set?

the locale was sucesfully set, and you can see it by using strftime()
the date returns is in hebrew.
the problem is only with the chars.
