One thing I noticed that chessx sucks characters in strings above 128.
The pgn spec enables these characters in string data:

You can try it with http://www.endgame.nl/dortmund.pgn from Jan van Reek's
http://www.endgame.nl/dortmund.htm page. It contains games from
Sämisch, Van Nüss, Réti, etc.

    The bug has been fixed in SVN.

    Instead of making UTF8 the default, I reverted to ANSI and offer a separate "Open in UTF8" menu item.
