Wonderful. Apparently you are sleeping right now, but I'll give it

Many thanks!

Are  there  plans to  support  multibyte  characters directly  in

No, currently there are no such plans. I'm not a big fan of unicode,
to be honest. But what I could live with would be an external library
(similar to Bigloo's ucs2 module).
