These particular accented vowels are part of ANSI, so the reference to UTF8
content was superfluous even through also true.

é = ANSI 233
ó = ANSI 243

Does Windows even allow usernames to include UTF8 characters way beyond ANSI
255 ?
If so, then is Xiphos 3.0.1 going to be fully compliant with UTF8 usernames
for Windows, or just the rest of the ANSI set beyond lowercase z (ANSI 122)
