I can't even write my name in that character set.

As long as there are multiple charactersets you will have the problem of 
some characters being shown wrong. This is nothing particular for UTF-8, 
you have the problem even when choosing between the 10+ different ISO-8859.

The only thing that UTF-8 introduce is the variable byte length 
characters so you can't equate no. bytes with no. characters.

Cheers, Erik
