But I do think you are fixing the code at the wrong level. UTF-8 characters can be up to 6 bytes long: http://www.cl.cam.ac.uk/~mgk25/unicode.html glibc provides various routines (mb...) for handling Unicode. How many of our supported platforms don't have these? If there are still some that don't, wouldn't it be better to use the standard routines where they do exist? -- Oliver Elphick [EMAIL PROTECTED] Isle of Wight http://www.lfix.co.uk/oliver GPG: 1024D/A54310EA 92C8 39E7 280E 3631 3F0E 1EC0 5664 7A2F A543 10EA ======================================== "Be still before the LORD and wait patiently for him; do not fret when men succeed in their ways, when they carry out their wicked schemes."
