I may have misunderstood, but I understood that Troy already spoke on  
this saying that SWORD allowed UTF-8 in RTF as an extension (I think  
this was also stated on the old Module Making page) and that the  
encoding of the conf had to match the encoding of the module.  
Certainly \u#####? is ASCII, so it is valid in all encodings.

According to the Wiki, both are allowed in RTF but UTF-8 is preferred.  
Granted, I authored this, but I was reflecting what I thought I  

We already have a bunch of release modules with UTF-8 in the conf's  
About field. And more coming in beta.
