Subject Re: Proposal: All DOCUMENTS TO UTF-8
Date Thu, 19 Jun 2003 14:34:00 GMT

I tried to convert them to \uxxxx style, but somewhat
I could not make it well. It might be due to the forrest itself.

So, I decided just change news.xml and casestudies.xml from
ISO-8859-1 to UTF-8 and used "Character Mnemonic Entities".
I'll let the /trans/xx/ dir leave as they are for a while.
