So, after dealing with a bit of monkeying with the database, I'm pleased to announce that Soylent should (in theory) have support for UTF-8 starting immediately. Now obviously this isn't well tested, so this is your chance to break the site in two, consider the comments below to be "open season" so to speak. I know the comment preview has some issues with UTF-8 (and it only works at all in Plain Text or HTML modes)

For purposes of breakage, anything that breaks the site layout/Reply To/Parent/Moderate buttons, or breaks any comments beyond itself is considered bad. We need to stop those. If you can break it (which shouldn't be hard), you earn a cookie, and I'll get you in the CREDITS file as something awesome.

For comments that are just plain unreadable, moderation will take care of them, and that isn't considered a bug. So go forth and BREAK my minions! ()}:o)↺

    Nothing to do with comments, but rather with contents of the article box:

    The links [ /dev/random ] [ The Main Page ]
    on THIS page work.

    However, the links [ Soylent ] [ The Main Page ]
    on other pages do not work for me.

    If I turn off CSS, then these links work. So it's the CSS, not the links themselves.

    [SeaMonkey 2.5 with JS turned off, here.]

    Cripes, you'd think I could come up with a better bug than that. :D
