that works fine, thank you!

the funny thing about this is, that i tried it before, but i just
didn't tell _all_ the plugins to use that input-encoding, but now as
i do, it works.

on top of that, i had problems with some weird characters (displayed
as "^U" - don't know how they got there), but i removed them manually.

so now my collection could be built - thank you very much!
