I would completely agree.  I have all sorts of diacriticals for Portuguese signs, like Corac�o, carra�o, s�mente and the like.  I can force them in by cutting and pasting, but it would be much more helpful if I could simply type them with the standard "control+~a" for example.

Hello everyone,

When I tried to enter an accented letter in "name of
sign" I couldn't because only characters up to 255 are
allowed. To be international one should:
* always use Unicode (utf-8)
* use method=post not method=get


Name of sign: [input] name="sign" type="input" />

should better be:


Name of sign: [input] name="sign" type="input" />

This will also effect how things are stored in the
dtabase, so be careful. It would be best to get this
right now because later would be more difficult.

Also, you might want to translate "Name of Sign" into
the local languages.

Good luck with this stunning piece of work!
