I'm using UTF-8 in my newsboard, too, and I have no major problems with
it. UTF-8 doesn't need to be handled as binary, I believe, since all
characters should be in a range over the control characters. Anyone
please correct me, if that's wrong...
Sorting will not work as expected, special characters are represented as
multiple other characters that might not be in the order you'd expect
them to be.
My search uses LIKE and I have no problems with it. The browser brings
me already UTF-8 data and I cannot imagine why it should not be usable
in LIKE queries.
