Hi all,

A friend of mine has installed texlive 2008 on a Windows machine and
would like to to use it with WinEdt with UTF-8.

Hoeweverm he faces two challanges which I cannot guide him with since
I'm not familiar with that operating system anymore.

Can someone please send me soem pointers on how to configure WinEdt to
use xelatex (which is in his DOS path) and secondly how Windows will not
use its native codepage but UTF-8 for entering characters with
diacritics. Any help is welcome.
