I was under the impression, garnered from following the W3C for
several, *several* years now, that UTF-8 was recommended for
universality, the way we are trying to take the Net so as to be
accessible for All..

Yes, no..? :)

Where I see UTF-8 implemented, it's nice to be able to read what
people are sharing instead of seeing nothing but bleeps and squiggles
because the [code] is not compatible with whatever is at hand..
