   These files are in 8859-1 encoding (names in comments, at least):
   If they are not marked as "text/plain; charset=iso-8859-1" I think it's
a bug. Either they should be marked, or converted to ascii or utf-8; the
coding pseudocomment (directive) should be changed accordingly.
   Probably there are other files.

           Programmers don't die, they just GOSUB without RETURN.
