I prefer ascii because it doesn't require that people have an editor
that support utf. But specifying -ascii is not going to help the
/doc/libs pages. I've been trying for a long time to figure out how to
make the web server not send out the HTTP utf-8 content header. Since it
prevents using anything but utf8 for content.
