I think that is depending on the application support the newly defined
UTF8_STRING for selection or not.
The Linux verion of mozilla implement it so it can copy/paste with the
recent version of xterm w/o problem
Notice that UTF8_STRING is defined AFTER X11 R6 ICCCM.
See the spec in http://www.pps.jussieu.fr/~jch/software/UTF8_STRING/ for
about mozilla's implementation
