Attached is a bug report I received a while ago.

If someone who knows more about i18n than I do could look into this
and supply patches, I'd be very grateful!

Hello Gerald:

Upon validation
<http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=http%3A%2F%2Fczyborra.com%2F>,
I get the response "non SGML character number 146", etc.
But chars 128 to 159 are perfectly legal characters in UTF-8,
Windows-1251, x-Mac-CE, and many other character sets.
<ftp://ftp.isi.edu/in-notes/iana/assignments/character-sets>
Could you please explain this?

Regards,
Andreas
