[Pmwiki-users] utf-8 problem

Sure.  Just change the value of $Newline in local.php to be some other 
character or character sequence that won't conflict with the UTF-8
character set and won't occur in normal markup text.  This may require 
rewriting some of the data files to replace $Newline with the new
character sequence; let me know if you want some help doing that.

I was never really happy with the choice of \xB2 (\262) to store the
newlines but at the time I wrote it I didn't have a good alternative.
I would not be opposed to switching to a new value (and having a mechanism
to convert/support the old value in existing installations) if someone can 
suggest a good one.
