Hey Sergey!

Exactly the same problem from what I've heard about other 8 bit codepages other
than cp437.

SS> What exactly is worse with the North American sites' word wrapping?

Once this reply works through the system then I'll post the url to check out
with regards to multibyte character wordwrapping as it applies to a default
utf-8 American site. Note the tagline and count the characters rather than the
bytes. I tried it before and nailed it perfectly but counted bytes rather than characters which causes
it to display on two lines rather than one.

BTW what do you think it says? Hoping it is the same what I believe it says.

Life is good,
