    While that is a wonderful testiment of the pure power of joe (in that it
is still quite comparable to editors which have been updated for the past 3+

    Do most of the terminal programs out there also default to showing
high-ascii properly?

    Loaded question as they don't.  Here's another one...  Does less default
to showing high ascii?  :)

    It is currently in the hands of the individual to RTFM.
