Yom Kippur Wishes & Greetings?

What are some good wishes and greeting for Yom Kippur? Can I just wish someone a blessed Yom Kippur or should I say something different?
Yom Kippur, literally "Day of Atonement," is the holiest day of the Jewish year and this year the date is Friday, October 7, 2011.
What is the right way to say have a great Yom Kippur? Can you recommend a special greeting or wish I should say to celebrate the holiday?

You can say something like 'Greetings of Peace and wishes for a deeply spiritual and meaningful day for you on this very holy day of Yom Kippur.'
And that will be enough as a Yom Kippur wish.
There is a formal greeting which starts off, "L'shannah tovah tikhataivun...." A less formal greeting is, "Chateemah Tovah," which may be used till Yom Kippur and when the day comes, you add the word 'G'mar.'
But just wishing a good fasting is enough in my opinion, they will surely appreciate it.
