Actually this "chinese dance" also caused me to stay away from Cuis,
which I really liked in general. Especially the speed.
Please do consider to have unicode as not optional.
Side remark: I tried Pharo as well for reading in some data with
unicode but it also coughed on Umlauts -- so I found myself to use the
squeakland distro again, which for me actually works best -- as soon
as I have changed it from kids-mode to developer-mode. Oh well...
