Why we don’t use UTF-8 on Movable Type

(1) Date encoding problems
(2) MT’s non-ascii XML-RPC support is possibly all broken (has this been fixed?)
Original mention of non-ascii XML-RPC problems.
(3) I think our original MT database corruption issues were related to invalid dates, possibly a result of using Zempt on a Movable Type setup with Berkley DB file system and UTF-8 enabled…
Until these issues are all adressed (and maybe they already are) I’m hesitant to switch our latest and greatest Weblogs.us V2 system to UTF-8.
