I can understand that.  Actually I think the versions I'm using are all
from the CVS book - for me, the latest *stable* version is as
bleeding-edge as I dare to get.  I was just worried that my question was
so boneheadedly stupid or poorly written that I had been written off by
the community as a whole as a hopeless case.

Let me ask you this, then: When you pull up a site with a non-Western
character set (such as www.pravda.ru, Russia's equivalent of the Weekly
World News here in the US) do the Cyrillic fonts appear, or do you get
little rectangles with hex codes in them?

If other users have trouble viewing UTF-encoded web pages, I won't worry
about it; I just thought I had screwed up some basic feature that normal
people (read: smarter than a rock) have working.
