I think we may be discussing slightly different things. I do not
understand what you ment by the above message. They are taught to do
so, I think.
Current debiasndoc-sgml creates copyright section starting with
HTML: Latain-1 code for © (1 character)
PDF: Latain-1 code for © (1 character)
Plain text: ASCII 3 characters (C)
That was today's build of my documment results. The source are like:
Copyright © 2001–2002 by Osamu Aoki <&osamu;>.
The plain text does not go beyond ASCII. Neither UTF-8 nor ISO-8859-1.
