You tell me what happens when I post in Japanese, then the next person
posts in Chinese, then the next person posts in German.

You get an unreadable, illegally encoded HTML file that may scramble
peoples' terminals or crash them.

If you have found a solution for this other than converting
everything to UTF-8, I would love to hear it.
