UTF-8 Encoding Now Supported

Last night I have changed the encoding on this site to use UTF-8 Encoding as opposed to the default ISO 8859-1 Encoding. That means I can write in all sorts of languages and funky characters. It also means there might be issues with other areas of the site, if you find any, please add a comment to let me know.

There shouldn't be any issues, because the beautiful thing abut utf-8 is it's backwardly compatible with normal latin charsets (including iso-8859-1).
