Wow, thanks a lot for the link. Just had a look at it. The thread runs
from 2000 to 2007!! 7 years!! What a complete mess :)

Guess I'll just have to enforce ASCII usernames and passwords for now.
Hope the IETF get around soon to updating the spec. It's really weird
that you cant enter non-ascii characters in a basic auth dialog.

Thanks again.
