Nick, I did just that; now I am unable to connect to the liberation site (I get a message saying the server did not answer, reverting to utf-8 cures the problem).

However, I could connect to my home page and see some accented letters rendered; however, (eacute) is replaced by uocase , (agrave) is replaced by the Yen sign and so forth...

Obviously there is a whole domain to explore there if this nice program is to be used by more than anglo-saxon people. Accented letters, diacritics, special letetrs like the cedilla () are used by all western languages!
