Umm, I meant a change like this, to allow UTF-8 string in msgid:

RCS file: /cvs/gnome/gcalctool/po/,v
retrieving revision 1.6
diff -u -r1.6
--- 26 Dec 2005 00:46:33 -0000      1.6
+++ 15 Jan 2006 01:21:02 -0000
@@ -1,5 +1,6 @@
 # List of source files containing translatable strings.
 # Please keep this file sorted alphabetically.
+[encoding: UTF-8]

Since it's just from a quick hack to make my translation update
work, I'm not so sure if it's the right thing to do. So, if it's approved
by an i18n expert, I'll commit it along with my translation update.

Regarding the division sign, I think most calculator users are familiar
with the "÷" sign rather than the Unicode "?". Two possibilities:
use the "÷" sign globally or let local languages customize it.
The latter choice may be one supporting reason for keeping the
gettext wrappers there.
