Although I could write conversion to/from UTF8 into the filename handling of cvsnt quite easily, there is no way of entering this data into the command line, so it'd be pointless. I've no idea of Mac support for UTF8... it's possible that the filenames passed in to cvs are encoded correctly, in which case it might be worth doing at some point (although I don't have access to a mac to test anything). At the moment cvsnt passes the filenames transparently, so I'd expect them to work provided all the clients were mac ones. The contents of the documents should work OK at the server side. There was a patch for the Unix client a while back and it's possible that later versions now support different encodings properly. If you have a non-UFT8 aware client, though, you're probably stuck with US-ASCII. Tony
