[pLog-svn] Encoding Titles

I think I now understand the issue:

If the page is, say, iso-8859-1 encoded (due to the definition in the
locale), and we want to add categories with umlauts or other non-ascii
chars through AJAX on the new post page, that screws up. We need utf-8
encoding on the website for this to work.

As utf8 is already default for the trunk I think this is an issue we
won't fix.
