[Q] WAListener and WAFileLibrary problem

It appears that you're trying to convince Seaside to send UTF-8, right? I
had the same problem during my time working with it. Then again, I didn't
want complete texts but only the Euro currency sign. And and what I did was:
I left my fingers off of WAListener and all those. Instead, I assembled the
three bytes needed for a Euro sign myself by hand into a normal String and
lo and behold, it looked right in the browser.

For Korean your approach is probably better, I guess. Mine was unsatisfying,
too, because it assumed incoming text to be encoded in latin-15, but emitted
texts in utf-8. Really not satisfying. I thought, the right approach might
be to enhance the String class with an additional field for the encoding and
give it some methods to transcode between them. By the way: the method
asUtf8 (or something like that) does not work properly with the Euro sign.

For example, when you print this:

 'Grüß Gott!' asUtf8

it looks awful, because the new string doesn't know it's UTF-8.

So, it appears that for Seaside to cope with Korean well, you might have to
change more than Seaside only.
