Subject: Updated HOWTO

An updated version of the Linux Unicode-HOWTO is at

- Don't recommend to set LANGUAGE=xx.UTF-8. Back to LANGUAGE=xx. Instead,
  recommend to use the new gettext library which converts the message on
  the fly. No more need to convert all the .mo files to UTF-8.
- Mentions Otfried Cheong's oc-unicode package instead of Mule-UCS.
- Mentions Edmund Grimley Evans' framebuffer console terminal emulator.
- Mentions Pango.
- Mentions Python's, Javascript's, Tcl's, Perl's Unicode support.
- libutf8 is in version 0.7.1.
- libiconv is in version 1.3.
- Remove dead "Multilingual Emacs and Unicode" URL.
