Bug#599197: gnome-orca: Bad display of orca's preferences menu
As simple user I don't agree. Indeed, firstly with utf8 systems it is
hard to communicate with Windows world, and it's however necessary in
daily life. Moreover, for users which come from Windows, it would mean
accents problems ... and it's impossible to convert thousands of old
files into utf8 (names and/or contents): dangerous and long. So I think
it's necessary to maintain iso, which works fine until now, even if
sometimes workarounds (orca) and adaptations (OOo) are necessary.
