Your wish is my command:

I have instructed our HTTP server to provide the appropriate
"Content-Type: text/plain;charset=utf-8" HTTP header, such that your web
browser should automatically decode correctly.

Please note that many web browsers have rather poor Unicode support and
distorts all of these files massively. To get a good reference output,
please use the new UTF-8 enabled XFree86 xterm or the yudit UTF-8 editor
together with the 6x13, 9x15, or 10x20 fonts from

Then only the Thai test texts will be slightly distorted (since xterm
doesn't have overstriking combining characters yet which are necessary
for proper Thai display).
