Can someone clarify what support there is in Bugzilla for UTF8 or other
multibyte character sets (UTF16)?
Specifically: Can you record bugs in UTF8 (in Japanese, in Korean)? (I
see there is contrib::recode so I assume you can store bugs in UTF8 if
you turn the utf8 parameter on)... The 3.0 release notes say 'Bugzilla
now correctly supports searching and sorting in non-English languages,
including multi-bytes languages such as Chinese.'
Can you use UTF8 in templates? The release notes for 2.22 state 'now
use UTF-8 encoding for all pages, automatically. It will also send
emails in UTF-8' but Atsushi Shimono's comments suggest that support for
UTF8 is limited to the ASCII 'portion'? The only open bugs I can see
that would be relavent are UTF8 filenames for attachments  and
comments not wrapping in UTF8 (and maybe  one about
garbled characters that is new).
If someone can clarify the status and the plans that'd be very helpful
