ah, that bit's new: is UTF-8 Esperanto?

that reveals the character as a simple `u', ie it omits the caret OWIC.

no, that doesn't work, as it shows SP's rendered version.

the correct UTF-8 character won't appear here for me,
as i don't have it in my XT accessed via Kermit 315 .

the explanations on offer seeming to omit vital bits of info.
French/German accents are ok, as they're in normal ASCII.
