/ Dave Pawson <daveP@dpawson.freeserve.co.uk> was heard to say:
| What about a list of tokens that contain chars such as café
| Surely we can't rule those out just because English doesn't use them?
No, but we don't have to. If é is in the character set of the
encoding that you use (and surely if you work in French, you want it
to be), you can just use the character. If é isn't in your
character set, you can still use &#x????;.
The point really is the reverse, if you specify a list of tokens that
happen to be US ASCII, no one will ever need to put é in it (or
bidi or ruby).
Be seeing you,
