Pah. :P

I should probably explain the madness above.

If you're running RO5, run !Writer, set the font to Cyberbit (or Unicode font of choice), type *country japan in a taskwindow, then hold down Alt and type the alphabetic keys on your keyboard. If you type them in the same order as I did for .uk, above, you'll see what the .ja line _should_ look like. Rinse and repeat for the others ;) Oh, and remember to do a *country uk at the end :P

The Icon Bar doesn't specify a character encoding anywhere, and it appears to simply store the bytes it receives, and then escape them as ISO-8859-1 upon display, leading to what you can see.

Oregano 1 is even worse when it comes to form submission; it submits Latin-1, no matter what character coding the page itself is in...

How rubbish. Although that may be entirely valid. (I forget and can't really be bothered to check the spec right now ;)).

The main point of the above mess was to test this:
