:-).  Come on!  UTF-8 has been *designed* so all Americans could rightly
claim, out of the box, that they comply and are using it when they
write, without having to change the slightest iota in their work habits.

Reading UTF-8?  No problem either, given it has been written by other
Americans.  UTF-8 from other countries?  Oh!  That's another story... :-)
