Freakin’ Amazin’

Someone somewhere along the chain of command at Google finally realized that there is a difference between a ‘c’ and a ‘ć’ or ‘č’. It looks like they’ve gone through and actually made the distinction between the standard English characters of the Roman alphabet and those that are typically part of the extended set. I was wondering when they’d get around to that. Admittedly, most of the things you would search for would still come up all right, but it is a critical difference.
I have no idea when this went in to effect, but it wasn’t so long ago that it was wrong. Now if everyone could start using proper UTF-8 page encoding so that way we do away with some of these bastardized character encodings. Maybe it’s just my personal preference (and yes, I know it’s not supported in some older browsers) but this has to be one of the easiest ways to get a lot of these characters to show up right.
