I think you hit the nail on the head, except I dont need any of those
weird foreign pictograms and scribbles ;-)
I'm only using English ( the most difficult, of course), French(a bit
twisted), Italian(a bit slanted, German(lots of options), Swedish(cold,
cold), Portugese(oh, boy) and maybe some other Western European variety.

So, in the end, utf-8 may not be so important for me after all. All
seems to be working just fine.
I think I'll upload the stuff to the real site and we can all have a
bash at it. 8-)
