Not interested in who to "blame" :-) The "name" reference was more  
into things like name of people with german umlauts :-) :-)

Then you've never used the SHELL_ESCAPE in XSPs for using Python  
bindings (or whatever that is) :-)

Seriously talking, it depends on a number of things, not only your  
platform encoding, but also on your editor's, your compiler and so  
on... The good thing about XML is the <?xml version="1.0"  
encoding="xxxx"?> sorting out 99.9% of the problems, but that said,  
the same problem can pop up here and there...

Anyone volunteers to write a little script looking for BYTEs (not  
characters) in our source code that are outside of the 00-7F (0-127)
