Just moments ago, Sergey asked in the Suggestion Box:
Wouldn't it be great to be able to set UTF-8 as a multibyte code page in Windows? What do you think?
Well yes, I think it would be great. :-)
Of course (in the spirit of RAH) I think it would be great if the lion could lay down with the lamb. Though I'd lay odds that only one of them would be getting up later....
I hint at some of the problems in this post and then talk about it more directly in the comments in this one.
Short version -- it can't happen.
Sorry, Sergey.... :-(
