I think Jason is talking more about coding all the characters as HTML entities. Something like converting


into (false example)

        &x#24242;x &x#103; .... and so on.

This came in a recent report about spam. It will only buy some time, though, until the bots become smarter. You only need a convertion table to get the real characters.

It shouldn't be hard to add that option, I guess. We are already escaping many special characters.

BTW, the wai changes are progressing!
