Who needs UTF-8? And how often, say, in a decade or the life period of

Using MacRoman you save some disk space – outside the U.S.A. and the  
UK. So Dick (Koch) should find a good explanation, because for natives

ISO Latin-9 or ISO 8859-15, the encoding with €, a modern and very  
valuable currency, could be a better choice. And it's an ISO standard,  
nothing proprietary.
