Also new on the Dashboard that you can choose (forward dropdown) between e-mailadresses and usernames when you have multiple ones plus the new language dropdown box under the adresses.

Hey Tom :)
What do you mean with non-UTF8 characters? Do you have any example URLs to check?
Thanks!
John

Hi John,
here it is
http://i36.tinypic.com/ae5rp4.png
it's about this page
http://www.zorgloob.com/2009/10/google-street-view-direction-le-mont.asp
And it's correctly indexed by Google
http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&safe=off&q=%22Google+Street+View+:+direction+le+Mont+Saint-Michel%22
(correctly = no encoding error, but it's full of spam ^^)
