Because NamesList.txt is generated by tools that depend
on 8859-1 (as a subset of Windows CP1252) and is further
manipulated as input by the unibook program, which operates in
CP1252 and not in UTF-8.
The whole file could be run through a conversion filter, of
course, and be posted in a UTF-8 version, but it isn't clear
at the moment whether that would end up helping more people
or hurting them.
