Yes. You are right.
But, Im not talking about any theory, or what it is.
People do not know about the *OUTPUT_CHARSET* and some time may
have an error message like "???? ???? ". and they think about it,
*Boooo, It so funny... what's up with my linux box ??*
When we go to the UNICODE land, what the default charset is ?
ASCII (defined in the C-ctypes.c) ? I don't think so.
translation messages have its own charset info. If we convert it all
to UTF8 encoding, the reasonable charset for this translation is as its
own UTF8. (previous message describe my humble *idea*)
Thank you for your reply.
