[Seaside] Accented characters

I struggled to use Japanese on Seaside recently.

The problem is not only about accented characters (Unicode). The cause
of that is a lack of the fundamental facility, 'charset', in Seaside.
Charset is very important especially in Asia. Many of Asian sites uses
various local charset not Unicode in reality. 

Umezawa-san and I made a patch for internationalization of
Seaside2/Squeak. This patch fixes the problems cause of charset
encodings (includes Unicode) on Seaside2.6b1. It makes WAKom (NOT
WAKomEncoded) handle Charset, XHTML lang, encoded filenames and encoded URL.

(This is a project on the SqueakSource in *Japanese*, however you can
load it into your image without any changes.)

I tested it on SqueakLand3.8-05 and Squeak3.9b-7048 with UTF8 and
several Japanese charsets by hand. It works well in any encoding.

The character encoding is a basic facility of a web server so, I think,
the patch should be merged into the main package of Seaside2.
(Seaside2I18N is branched from Seaside2.6b1-lr.52.)
Please, take a look.
