Isn't Java supposed to be capable of recognising all unicode and ascii text formats? If Jikes can't handle that, then it's a problem with Jikes. It would probably be best informing the people working on it about this problem, because it's likely to recur. Rewriting the entire source in a single text format is not a reasonable option.

And meanwhile, you have to use a proprietary program to compile the code. Right?

Anyway, there's maybe less than 10 non-ASCII character in the whole Classpath CVS (should be verified). Why not encode these using "unicode escapes", e.g.: \u1023 ? The Java designers did this exactly to minimize the problems of compiling code under various platforms.
