There are two reasons not to use UTF-8 as input format: - There're still editors, consoles and other tools that have hefty troubles with UTF-8, especially when it's not used as the native encoding on the system - Last time I looked most if not all processors have troubles transcoding UTF-8 to HTML entities or different charactersets, unfortunately quite a few browsers cannot properly display the former. I'm sure we can switch really fast as soon as there is significant support or at least demand. -- Servus, Daniel
