Hmm...interesting. Not entirely sure what the implications of what you
are saying are (as I don't really understand codepages).
Does a codepage represent a character with 16 bits? or 8? Could you
recommend a book or a URL on the subject? Maybe I should look at this
when I have more time (I'm in the middle of a move).
