You ask an interesting question.
My answer is biased because I have been delving into this for the past
couple of weeks for another project, but I would recommend you use unicode.
The reasons for this are multifold:
- It is the way to go :)
- It is the right thing to do :)
- And there are a lot of tools out there which allow to you work effectively
with it, as well as a lot of documentation which explains it all.
If you wish I can send you a list of links to resources, which I would also
be happy to post to the list for everyone.
One thing I will note here is that my OAI search interface, my.OAI, is going
to go Unicode (utf-8) in the next couple of weeks. The search interface as
well as all the text will be Unicode based, while the search engine will
support iso-8859-1, so no Chinese searching yet, but most European languages
will be supported, so a search for 'francois' will yield different results
from a search for 'françois'.
