I'm still wondering where the argument _for_ this is. I'm doing
Anglaise and nothing else, and you can easily handle that there.
Rhetorical, but why would I want to go utf-8? I can see little point
in it in my situation.
I'll create another acct on this thing and try it there.
If I manage to find my way South to S. Am. & learning Espanol, it
likely will come in handy. I'll be able to do that curly thing over
the n that word should have.
Any technology distinguishable from magic is insufficiently advanced.
