This is somewhat [OT] but I wanted to ask - how often do you come
across web content that is in UTF-8 and is available under an
appropriate license that allows sharing and distribution ?

If not enough local language content is available (in the region) in
UTF-8, do you have any thoughts on why that would be so ? Especially
given the prolific amount of published literature that one sees.

Additionally, do you know of any sources whereby children's rhymes in
the local language can be available so as to propose an inclusion of
them as part of OLPC and like projects ?

But I dream things that never were;
and I say 'Why not?' - George Bernard Shaw
