Nope. Not yet at least. Imagine the mess with attendees named Pär, Göran,
José, Åsa, Günter, Úlfar, Søren and Džons.

Then it gets really messy when attendees' surnames start with non-ASCII
letters, for instance Åkerman. During online registration you replace the
'Å' (third last letter in the Swedish alphabet) with a regular 'A' (first in
the Swedish alphabet) to make the name *look* good on the badge. But the guy
has to choose the wrong line on-site since his surname now is in the "A to
L" line, not the "M to Ö" line that he's used to.

Well, well. We figured it out and everybody was happy in the end.
