Proven worng. So it is possible. Good.
Still a bit strange to find UTF-8 (a transform, ie. an algorithm)
besides MacThai (an encoding, ie. a table). But, semantic subtleties
aside, it's there.

Fair 'nuff. So be it.

Good, so now you may work on the linker :-)!

Strange. The book I was referring to (Java in a nutshell, 2nd)
doesn't show this last constructor. What JDK is that in? Is the
book already out-of-date (I bought it just 2 days ago).
Thanks to Erik and Glen for the pointers,
