Description esperantisto 2005-02-03 06:50:18 UTC
Currently, the StarBasic editor export source as ASCII file, which is 
inappropriate in many cases when the code contains non-ASCII characters which 
either loose diacritic signs (if latin letters) or are replaced by question 
marks. The suggestion is to export the source as UTF-8. That will both enhance 
source distribution and keep compatibility as for eporting/importing the 
existing code.

The issue is still there in OOo 3.0 beta. The source exports to cp1251 —
probably, according to the locale of Windows XP. This greatly compromises
portability of macros.
