I noticed that many people seem to get the following error with
character incoding ( I did too ):
> Sorry! A fatal error occurred when attempting to transcode the
character encoding of the document. 
> Either we do not support this character encoding yet, or you have
specified a non-existent character encoding (often a misspelling).

This problem can be resolved by doing a simple dos2unix on the config
file charset.cfg. That did the trick for me.
