After visiting the page, it seems that there are some errors in
the UTF8 encoding. The second byte in a multibyte sequence are
sometimes out of range, that is, above <BF>, which could result
in undefined behaviour. The incorrect sequences are <C4><C1>,
<C5><CD> and <C5><CC>.

Interpreting the phrase "as it existed on June 6, 1998"
correctly, there are still 3 days to fix the problem.
