Funny, Brion, that you happened to come here the same day as myself :) But, anyway, what Brion said is correct: if the page is not served as UTF8 then sending utf8 input is illegal. Mozilla (illegally!) tries to convert it to embeds (&#), opera marks illegal chars with question marks.
On the other hand something is still buggy. If I set usemod to utf8 I can almost use utf-8: I cannot write LATIN SMALL LETTER O WITH ACUTE (UTF-8: 0xC3 0xB3), it gets replaced to an illegal character. Probably other utf8 chars get garbled as well.
See garbled: http://narya.grin.hu/cgi-bin/wiki.pl?TesztLap (it wasn't preformatted, so the lines are not nice, but the point is the illegal utf8 characters, and not the beauty of the page) and the original at http://hu.wikipedia.org/w/wiki.phtml?title=Wikip%C3%A9dia:UTF-8_demo
This is surely not a browser bug but a usemod problem, as Wikipedia obviously handles it very well. -- PeterGervai?

Maybe UseMod simply misses this?
