I just finished adding support for converting between various character 
encodings in the new Aspell, such as converting between UTF-8 and 
ISO8859-1.  You should now be able to set the "encoding" option like you 
were able to in the original Pspell.   For example you can now give Pspell 
"UTF-8" text by setting the encoding option to "utf-8".

This however has not been very tested very well at all.  So if you want to 
help out try using different encoding for some non-English language (one 
that uses more than ASCII) and let me know if you find any bugs.

To set the encoding with the example utility "aspell0" use
  aspell0 <lang> - - <encoding>
The two dashes are place holders and can not be left out.  Available 
encoding are:
  utf-8  "machine unsigned 16"  "machine unsigned 32"
  iso8859-* koi8-{f,r} viscii cp1252
