Debian 2.2.17, MySQL 3.22.32, IC 4.5.8(CVS), perl 5.00503, GPG 1.0.1
VERSION 4.5.8 - Build 18/10/00

Hi all,
I am building/testing IC 4.5.8 for use within the UK, when I changed 
the values associated with TAX via Knar (applying changes) to the 
following it simply would not work (returning 0.00):

   TAXFIELD  country
   TAXRATE  UK=17.5

No errors are reported (just for the record).
Has anyone else outside of the US (tested using Akopias address 
within Virginia and it worked fine) tried changing these values to 
anything that works? (esp changing the TAXFIELD from "state" to any 
other value).

On another note I also cannot get price breaks to work [?], and am 
still having problems with the thread I started yesterday with 
ENCRYPTOR returning encryption error on checkout (using PGP - then 
GPG - interestingly though the  error logs no longer report any 
errors)...[?] - though I shall keep working on those and are meant as 
a comment in case anyone else is having the similar problems and why 
I have not added any more detail.

BTW - the work you (Akopia) are doing is getting better & better, the 
changes from yesterdays build gave me quite a surprise  8-)  The 
locale DB is a joy to use now. Cheers!
