PostgreSQL uses the recode library.

Recode can translate UTF-8 to any Windows encoding. i.e, it should be 
possible to translate UTF-8 (server) to Hebrew (Windows encoding, client), 
provided that Western VB is able to display Windows Hebrew fonts (which 
should be the case, no?).

Otherwise we will have to ask users of VB localized versions to recompile 
pgAdmin2. This should work anyway, in one case or another.

So users should be able to :
- choose client encoding,
- choose font for display.
