    A reply to J Berger

    Thanx for the info re Mojolicious.

    I have actually looked into using it a number of times. Indeed, I've even released a little module, MojoX::ValidateHeadLinks, which hopefully is of use to more people than just myself.

    I was not aware of Mojo going to such lengths to support utf8.

    Basically, though, the current exercise is retraining myself away from YUI and to jQuery, using an existing app as a known base.

    I must admit being a bit shocked by the quantity of work I …

    (This is the 5th time I've posted this. Gotta hate
    Movable Type for being so time-out happy these days. Seems to be a bug with Preview, so I won't do that).

    1) I don't have any utf8 strings in the source code,
    so are you saying that if I cut all references to
    'use utf8;' that the program would still work
    perfectly? I don't believe that, as I've indicated
    by advising every module must contain the preamble.
    This advise is based on problems with modules where
    I had not included that preamble.

    2) By "UTF-8 deco…

    I believe that it is correct to say that a program without utf8 strings in the source will behave correctly without `use utf8;`. That said, as chansen has mentioned himself, since UTF-8 is a superset of ASCII, why not? That way when you do add a UTF-8 character somewhere, you don't have to remember to go import the `utf8` pragma. Seems pragmatic to me :-)

    wish things were that simple. our system has unspeakable mess in the encoding layer. I don't know that will be fixed. I can only use stuff like Unicode::UTF8 after all that mess is cleared up.
