I'm sure this was ages ago, but IIRC, UTF-8 was discussed at some  
point and the decision was made not to use it because it's support  
was pretty spotty in the browsers of the time.  I'm sure this has  
improved vastly now and UTF-8 makes the most sense.

Have you gotten any love on this issue Ethan?  To be honest, I'm not  
a translator (heck, I barely speak English despite years of at least  
2 other languages in high school and college :).  When I was working  
out the basic i18n support I implemented a stupid rot13 translation  
using nothing more sophisticated than XEmacs and the gettext tools.

Please, can any i18n'ers help Ethan out with a better tool set?
