Discused?  None directly but it gives the grammar. "the files" was referring 
to "files on disk" from the start of the text.  I don't care where the 
statement goes but it should go somewhere - next to the grammar is as good a 
place as any as far as I can see.  It is not just a protocol issue, nor just 
a test files issue.

It does not work to just not say anything - one app runs with ISO-8859-1, 
one on UTF-8 and it does not work e.g character .  At best, the ISO 8859-1 
char becomes an encoding error in UTF-8.


PS The convention for queries has been to use file extension .rq
