Brett.  you can't imagine how much I wish that was an option :(

I'm dealing with regexes that have to deal with Russian (in Koi-8 and 
WIndows-1251), Japanese, Chinese (mostly Big-5 and GB-2312), and (soon) 
Korean through an application that wasn't intended to handle anything 
but ASCII when it was created.  Wheeeeeeeeeee!

That's why I'm dabbling in raw character codes :p

And yes, Ken Lunde's CJKV Information Processing is worth much more than 
its fairly steep price :-)
