Mis-Statement on my part. What I meant was if you use one of the 
single-byte ISO-encodings, you're stuck with English and any languages 
covered by that encoding. You can't have a language not covered by that 

IOW, if you're using ISO-8859-1 as the encoding on a page, you can have 
English, German, Spanish, French, etc. But, if you try to put Polish on 
the page things will mess up.
