At least this is true for inline spell checking. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Set the current dictionary to en-US (which uses ISO8859-1) 2. Write a _wrong_ word which uses non-western symbols. For example, I use Russian word "тестх" (right one is "тест") Actual Results: Wrong word is not underlined. Expected Results: Wrong word should be underlined. The problem can be worked around if we change the encoding of en-US dictionary (s/SET ISO8859-1/SET UTF-8/ and recode if needed). Not investigated, but I think, there are some lost after character conversion within hunspell module. BTW, hunspell used in OpenOffice.org returns the expected result.

s/SET ISO8859-1/SET UTF-8/ definitely not enough. I get the following errors with this change: This UTF-8 encoding can't convert to UTF-16: smörgåsbord UTF-8 encoding error. Missing continuation byte in 5. character position: soigné So definitely need to recode.
