Thank's. The current idea is to use ISO-8859-1 and FSS-UTF, especially
in the common indexing protocol which is supposed to be used
in the communication even between Whois++ servers and other servers,
such as LDAP ones.

There is a special working group started (within IETF)
which is supposed to take care of the development
of the common indexing protocol, and I am the chair...
I will in the unicode mailing list inform about the
existance of the group when it is started. I want to
have more UNICODE knowledge but me when discussing character
set things.
