Thank you for the answers. After some thoughts I'll go with the traditional way of doing things and will use ISO8859-1 as there is no good reason to use UTF8.
I guess directly supporting UTF8 in the whole OS is not planned (because not really possible without loosing compatibility)?
Nothing is wired to support multibyte encoding in the operating system for legacy library calls. For example, all text related functions in graphics.library do not have a hint about text encoding.
