No problem.

Okay; thanks.

nano will be able to use those as soon as rebindable keys are
implemented and the above keybindings are provided for it.  Note that the 
ongoing consolidation of nano's input code in the unstable branch
will, when it's done, provide a framework within which rebindable keys
can easily be implemented.

Don't worry; I got it.

UTF-8 sequences involve some characters that nano shows as control
characters, and control characters are treated as though they're two
characters wide.  (In the "unicode characters" that are generated, do
you get any characters that look like "^À" in the ISO-8859-1 character
set?  All UTF-8 sequences start with ASCII 128, which is shown as that

That is unfortunate.  However, as you know, it's on the TODO list for
1.4, so it'll be in by then.
