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's some room for abuse there; 'unintelligible' ranges from "I don't speak that language" to Time Cube to "poster doesn't make cogent argument". Since that last one borders closely on "I don't agree with this" I hope meta-moderation will keep that in check.
