	With the latest rev of the engine, we have the option to switch to UTF8 
for the .conf files.  We've done this in the latest windows build and so 
all that shows up are UTF8 locales-- which I don't think we've shipped 
any yet with the windows product, so you only get the default.  All of 
our locales can be found in svn at:


I hope this helps.  There is an encoding tag in the .conf file to 
designate what encoding is being used.

I have not started experimenting with the i18n of the latest windows 
code yet.  Not sure how broken it's going to be with UTF8 data, but I 
suspect at least minor changes will be needed on my end.


PS. Who ever converted the sword locales.d native locales to UTF8, would 
you mind repeating the process for the uilocales.d above?  I'd really 
appreciate it.  -T.
