But I'm not sure if I understand the necessary changes needed for the 
change to UTF-8. As you know we generate a set of datafiles (if any 
encoding applies its probably ISO-8859-15) for scriptindex and 
afterwards omega to search through the data.
Is there any way to let scriptindex know we're feeding it ISO-8859-15 
rather than UTF-8? The UTF-8 support in normal php installations isn't 
very good. And is it also possible to let Omega know we are feeding it 
ISO-8859-15 and want that returned as well?

Or are we required to supply those commands with UTF-8 data?

Best regards,
