May 21, 2002: Google Supports Unicode Search Results

Calum Mac Leod writes in to point out that Google supports Unicode in search results. This means that with the right browser, you'll be able to see japanese characters in titles and excerpts. I'm not sure how long this has been available but it sure is nice. It's probably not compatible with all browsers -- it requires Unicode support and Unicode fonts.
