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)↺

    There will be stories about Finns with äs in their names. Swedes with Ås in their names, and maybe, just maybe, stores about icelandic volcanoes with ðs in their name. Whilst I like the idea of everyone agreeing to use English language, that doesn't mean every word they'll be typing will be English.

    Note - this post isn't UTF-8, this is plain old ASCII, I used the &entity; syntax.
