Um. I don't know... :)

It currently uses the anydbm module... if your dbm supports non-American
strings, it should work just fine.

The only test it makes is whether or not the key corresponding to the
page is a string.. I break the words down with a normal string.split()

I don't have python 1.6 installed, so I don't know how it'll react to
unicode...

Cheers,
