        Soulskill, I demand you prove your identity by making no less than 10 damage control posts stating that you are listening to our concerns about there being too much utf-8 support.

          The UTF-8 support is a lie.

            Well, sort of. I can see Unicode goodies in other people's posts, just can't conjure them myself.

              They seem to work only with entities like ζ but not with direct entry like à¥. Apparently the UTF8-bytes get interpreted as latinn1 instead.

                Oops, I should also have given the input form. In the first case, it was ζ, in the second form the unicode character U+0950 entered directly. Well, actually (as you probably have guessed by now), I meant to use ॐ, resulting in &#x0950.

                  Err ... resulting in ॐ of course — I really should have used preview ...

                    And I see nesting ends at level 7. Is this configurable somewhere? I've got enough screen space to allow several more nesting levels.

                    Note that it may make sense to store the maximal nesting level in a cookie, to allow different settings on different devices.
