      Dear Christian,

      I'm CCing the sgf-std list, as I guess this is of interest to others as

      Technically speaking you are right. De facto, just about all programs
      that are able to deal with characters outside Latin1 use UTF-8 encoding.
      I guess I should update the spec to make UTF-8 (and maybe other Unicode
      encodings such as UTF-16) legal values as well.

      Thanks for bringing this to my attention. I shall update the spec soonish.
