I am not too familiar with character encoding issues with GemStone ... I 
think that we are probably pretty close to Squeak in that regard for the 
moment (i.e., we can handle storing anything in the byte arrays, but 
when it comes to intelligent manipulation of characters ByteArray and 
String don't cut it). We have DoubleByteString classes that I think 
would help here , but I haven't worked with integrating them into 
Seaside. It is something that we planned to provide for in the future, 
but haven't spent much time on up to now.

Using GBS and VW just might be the best combo for the near term ... Why 
don't you contact Monty Williams at GemStone, I'm sure that something 
can be worked out.
