 >>>>>>>>​ The page is not that long. I do not see a reason for splitting it up into sub-pages. The header sectioning should be enough to provide good navigation. \\  --- //​[[wiki:​user:​alienbob|Eric Hameleers]] 2012/11/20 07:31// >>>>>>>>​ The page is not that long.

 >>>>>​ I believe you. I did browse through docs before. I even looked in the kernel source. But there could also be a .config option to override that. There'​s no logic in liloconif adding vt.default_utf8=1 when a user enables utf-8, if there'​s no reason for it. Anyway you will find the similar advice on Dugan Chen's unicode article on his blog. So I would think this is somehow overriden. Or it's not enabled by default. ​ --- //​[[wiki:​user:​bocke|Bojan Popovic]] 2012/11/19 10:07// >>>>>​ I believe you. I did browse through docs before.

 +I believe there is a small mistake / typo in this section where "​unicode-start"​ and "​unicode-stop"​ is documented. My Slackware installation (14.1) has "​unicode_start"​ (underscore rather than hyphen) and "​unicode_stop"​ as the installed commands. They work great - just as documented here.
