Pm and I are considering migrating the pmwiki.org site to UTF-8.
UTF-8 is a universal character encoding that allows the usage of all world
languages in every page. Also, UTF-8 support in PmWiki was greatly improved
about two years ago, and many wikis, including my own, use it successfully.
Currently, some localized groups use UTF-8, others use the older standard
ISO-8859-1 or another encoding.
For wikigroups that are already in UTF-8, there will be no change. For the
others, the conversion will be automatic. The conversion will be easier if
all Group.PageNames of the non-UTF-8 groups are in plain ASCII Latin letters
We are still just brainstorming, so any comments, ideas or questions will be
