Hi all

Two problems with the download page:

1) Language detection depends on the browser used :) For Windows it shows
the two downloads available as expected (thanks for adding the file size)
but when I switch to Linux deb I get different results.

(There is a particular combination in my PC that causes this confusion: I
always use the English version of programs even though my Regional Options
are set to Portuguese (Portugal) and Location to Portugal)

Under Firefox I get the "en-US English US", under Opera 11 I get (ru)
Russian (i.e. the first item on the list) and under IE6 (yes, I know it's
oudated but I only use it when everything else fails) I get "pt (português)"

Both Firefox and IE make sense. Maybe there should be an extra tick box to
"automagically" select between browser language or locale?
(Opera obviously has a problem...)

2) The language selection dropbox doesn't seem to be  sorted by any
criteria. It is not sorted by the two letter code (arguably because users
don't know their two letter code?) but it's not sorted alphabetically

I have no idea how to sort non-western latin characters but at least those
in western latin characters should be consistent. Because some are
capitalized (as expected) and others are not there are two sorted parts of
the list: first the capitalized section and then the non-capitalized.
