I'm not sure :-)

If you can reproduce the bug, please mail an example to me (sgf +html)!

It's the same problems as with the SGF files.

I'm not sure whether we should

(a) convert the input text to ISO-8859-1 and store it internally as


(b) store the text internally as UTF-8 and convert to ISO-8859-1 before
saving SGF, text and html.

Of course, we may generate the html as UTF-8 by setting the appropriate
Content-Type, but I prefer that the html is in ISO-8859-1 as this is the
default Content-Type and all browsers should understand it.

Yes, but running the script is not trivial. The window must be exactly
the size specified in the script.

I've plans to add code so you can generate your own html images, but it
may be while before I start.
