I'm still not able to get this to work.  Attached is my script (or find it at 
http://pubpages.unh.edu/~jmb97/SDL/NFont/render-nfont.scm).  It produces a 
bitmap of the characters in a font.  I thought the whole first byte was 
identical between ASCII and UTF-8...  Anyhow, maybe someone can get it to work 
or see what I'm trying to do.  Basically, I'm just trying to put the special 
and accented characters (161, '¡' to 255, ÿ) into a string, but the Gimp isn't 
outputting anything where they should be.  The script appears as NFont->Create 
NFont.  Then you must check the extended ASCII box.  I tried using Emacs, but 
changing the encoding didn't affect anything.
