It's just as well you thought of this, as I had overlooked it.

Not quite: the .txt files need to be in UTF-8, otherwise they won't be
able to contain all the necessary characters.  So the open statement
on line 134 needs to be fixed.

I think the browse script on the website can already handle non-ASCII
characters in the .txt files, as long as they are in UTF-8.  It just
copies the bytes unchanged to the XHTML page, so it doesn't need to do
any decoding/encoding.
