Re: Why does anybody treat passwords as ASCII FFS

Ah yes, the wonderful days I spent trying to let Javascript ("All strings are UTF-8.") do HTTP basic auth (Encoding not specified in the RFC, depending on what RFCs you read, that means ASCII or Latin-1 or possibly mis-implemented as Win-1252).

Sorry, beyond the printable 95, chances are you're on your own.
