No one knows how to get around this? We are running with ISO-8859-1 as locale and creates
the pgsql db with encoding=latin1...
When I use norwegian letters, it complains that continuum can't convert my Norwegain character
and throws an exception...
If I create the db as UTF-8 or use the included Derby database, I no longer get an error but
I only get question marks back from
the db for the Norwegian letters.

Can this really be so hard??
