Don't really know what to do today. Oh and yes, I added some simple ISO-8859-1 support to Angband yesterday to have Sméagol and Nazgûl and even my own name Sandø. It's probably unportable to obscure systems which Angband runs on, but for Langband which runs on more modern systems it might be an option to make things run with UTF-8 or UTF-16. This will also allow for more fanciful names and more wilde characters to bump into in the game.
Well now, I should get back to this compiler.
