Cyrillic letters in TADS3 GUI?

I received this question in email from a TADS3 user in Russia. If anybody can answer, I’ll send him a reply.

Probably not. Workbench is unable to view and edit source files in unicode, see: http://bugdb.tads.org/view.php?id=146. When the source file is in system default 8 bit encoding (in my case cp1250), workbench can at least view it correctly, but still unable to edit them.

On the bright side, the rest of the system is perfectly capable of internationalization, I’m compiling using frobtads on linux and playing using qtads (multiplatform) or on web.
