Subject: Speaking of string encodings...

I'm wondering what's being done to cut n' paste interaction with other
If I cut/copy something in AbiWord and paste it in, say, Evolution or
nedit, some characters (e.g. " and ') is replaced by a questionmark(?).
I assume that this behavior is caused by different
character-encodings/codepages in different programs. Is there a planned
resolution for this or are you still thinking?
This can be pretty irritating and for example hinders my father to move
to using abiword fulltime. These kind of problems (opening of some
.doc-files shows similarly behavior as described above) is the main
thing that he complains about. And IMHO rightfully so.
I apologies if this is bringing up an all-talked-through subject.
