UTF-8 is fast becoming the defacto standard character set (with good reason) so I'd use it. It's probably a good additional point that most of the standard character sets have no © symbol and that there is no legal basis for "(C)" being a valid representation of it. On the other hand, policy states UTF-8 for Changelog which breaks katie if your name contains accented characters because you're still forbidden by policy to use UTF-8 in debian/control. We are become grey; we stand between the policy and the star... Scott -- Have you ever, ever felt like this? Had strange things happen? Are you going round the twist?
