Uhm, ok, I get it ;-)

I'll rephrase that... how do I ensure that a UTF-8 textfile will be read and recognised as such using Squeak (or Pharo) smalltalk? I was expecting some sort of decoding mechanisms or a method of telling Squeak this String or Stream is now utf-8.

A hint? Anybody? Please? Pretty Please?
