#277 unicode support

OBO-Edit (271)

Unicode capability requested by some users.

I would prefer to put it on a high priority, considering our dependence
on OBO-Edit on Plant Ontology Development. As we expand to all plants,
it seems many of the term names as actually introducd in plant anatomy
as it is from non-English languages. Therefore, having the Unicode
capability will help.

    Can someone check if this now works, and if not, give an example (what field, and what the unicode string is that doesn't work)?
