  + 364593 [m.fellinger@] {"ABC"=>[65, 66, 67]}
  | + 364595 [xeno.campano] That's an artifact of the old ASCII encoding.  Uppercase letters came out first
  | + 364597 [josh.cheek@g] Thanks, but it doesn't seem to work on 1.8
  |   + 364599 [xeno.campano] I thought Unicode started with ASCII anyway, so I don't think that solves it...
  |   + 364609 [m.fellinger@] {"ABC"=>[65, 66, 67]}
  |     + 364611 [josh.cheek@g] Well, a lot of systems still ship with it, SnowLeopard, for example ships
