Subject Re: MacRoman text encoding and C2

Thanks Fulvio

Looks like the JDK's native2ascii is what I want, only i'd need to 
make my own Generator out of it or something in order to perform the 
translation live, yeah?

And that scares me!

Do you think a Generator is the right way to go here? (That basically 
does the same as the xml file generator, or the serverpages 
generator, but performs the translation to utf-8 beforehand)
