Are you suggesting that iso646 becomes the new `C locale' device to fit
that?  If the only difference is s/`/'/ then it's very like the
configuration option I think Mike suggested that Ingo was against.

This all seems like too much discussion for something that troubles few
users and some of them only when they're on a foreign machine that
doesn't automatically give them the UTF-8 rendering they prefer and are
used to in their normal environment.

Cheers, Ralph.
