SciTE does not find the words when they contain national characters.
When encoding default (chars.accented= 8bit chars) - words are identified.
(Try-out: Ctrl+Left, Ctrl+Right, copy to input box Ctrl+F, etc.)
When code.page=65001 (chars.accented change utf8 is useless) - words can not be identified.

    Scintilla uses simplistic tests based on bytes rather than characters to determine words. It would be a big improvement to fix this. However it is also a large amount of work to implement this well.

    It is unlikely I will implement this.
