UTF8 on LC server

Thanks, Kee.

Actually, I had found the reference to codepoint in the dictionary and 
tried it. But it seems to work the same as character -- breaking kanji. 
My test code is "put codepoint 500 to 550 of variable1" and the webpage 
shows: �。こうして夕があり、朝があった。�  The beginning and ending 
kanji got split in half. Identical results to "put char 500 to 550."

>> Yes, I've got that header set up, and UTF8 is working fine, pages look great. But LC server is not handling character chunking in variables the same way as LC desktop. In desktop, I can say "put char 1 of variable1" and I get a Japanese kanji. In LC Server, I only get half a kanji. "Word" chunks are also not working. Items and lines are OK.
