        Yeah, but the CC character set is limited.  It also doesn't
map one-to-one with Latin-1 so we have to do some translation already.
It seems a waste to go to Unicode just to represent 11 extra
characters.  Also, it means the nuv file format changes and the player
will still need to be able to play both old and new files.

        Maybe an an escape code to temporarily switch to Unicode?  Is
there a standard for that?
