Your foreign characters are my native. UTF-8 is 20 years old now. Just use it already!



Jeeze... do you really think that your native characters are a good idea to be used in an URL? Take this URL for example: http://archaeologie-ooe.info/orte/hoersching

I could have used UTF-8, and made the URL http://archäologie-oö.info/orte/hörsching, but then all of the sudden 95% of the worlds population couldn't type that URL anymore.
