Yeah, this has been fixed in 1.1 trunk, and also in 
1.0-optimization-tunk, which will be merged back to 1.0-trunk soon 
(tonite Paris time ?)

Same response.

Ok, this is something I have to explain. I had to set those chars in the 
file using an encoding. Java files use Unicode, but only when compiled. 
Until then, you need to store files which use an encoding scheme, and 
explain the compiler which encoding those java files have been created 
with. ATM, all the java files are using UTF-8 encoding. If you svn up 
the project and try to compile it on windows, there is a good luck that 
you are using ISO-8859-1 or CP-152 encoding, which is very different 
from UTF-8 encoding (especially when trying to use chines or japanese 
chars :). What you may do is :
- change the default encoding on your computer (if you build it under 
CygWin, I think changing LANG variable to en_??:UTF-8 should be enough)
- fix maven property file to include the |${maven.compiler.encoding} 
property.| I have no idea how to do that :(
- fix the test files to use unicode escaped sequences for all the 
special chars. Painfull :(

Sorry about the choice I have made...
