So, I was fooling in my Windows XP to change the regular day names around, from 'Monday' to 'Mundane' or something like that. So far, I've kinda figured out that I'll have to edit some locales in locale.nls (maybe) in a non-Notepad hex editor to properly change it. But that's when I got stuck.

Well, after backing up the original to 'locale.nls.backup', editing locale.nls and rebooting, I found out that the calendar have been garbled up with unreadable characters, and every single day in the week have its name messed up too. I have since restored the backup to return it to normal, but I got curious.

So, my question is, are there any proper way to modify/make a custom locale without ever screwing up like that? Or is there any slightly easier way to do it?

My Tsunday Sunday awaits.

EDIT: I edited the files via Ubuntu's GHex, does it still count as a Windows XP 'problem'?
