In news:040120022151192238%andreas.prilop@altavista.net,
Andreas Prilop reports an apparent problem:

On investigation, I find that iconv to macintosh to utf-8 runs
apparently successfully, but the utf-8 generated appears to contain
spurious null bytes at the characters Andreas highlights,
and in any case causes OpenSP to choke.

Can anyone throw further light on this?
