Language packs issue.

Some of the language packs for Winamp3 have to use UTF8 internationalization but really shouldn’t have to.

In the language files all character with codes > hex “F3” (243) are not accepted. It seems a bit odd to me. Is there any convention in XML-files reserving those last 12 character codes before hex “FF” (255)?

If not, it would certainly help translating languages using ô, õ, ö, ÷, ø, ù, ú, û, ü, ý, þ, ÿ (Scandinavian, German and other European countries).

People using Windows localization for their languages would not have to use UTF8. They would not get any problems with filenames and play lists using localized characters. And we would not have to make all that fuzz in the “locales” installer programs that is needed now.
