Hi all,

this is very interesting. Is it then possible to store say characters 
from latin1, big5, and greek within the same iso-8859-1 database? I 
always thought that this was precicely what utf8 was for... Anyway, say 
this works - and the rest is then done by typo3 to get proper utf-8 for 

greets, Torsten
