ftstring  -m can handle Unicode strings but I found it to be cumbersome as I 
had to copy-paste sample strings from the browser. I can hard code Unicode 
using c89 escaped strings byte by byte but it looks ugly, c99 \uhhhh escaped 
Unicode looks more natural.

I only want to cover languages natively spoken by more than 100 mln people. 
This is just 10 languages and strings.
