It would be nice if foreign characters could be used in chat.  Specifically I would like accents and tildes to be available for when I need to communicate to Spanis speakers, but umlauts I'm sure would also be appreciated.

Thank you

Bumping this up. With more and more players from outside the US/UK/Europe playing, it's becoming increasingly frustrating to chat with others in their own language. Without accent marks, some words --- Spanish words, for one --- change meaning.

Beware of char of detach bug :)
UTF handling for IRC client would be great, but it need be filtered properly to not kill client.
IRC module need to be properly protected to avoid client crash.
Maybe we can get "reconnect" button and fix crashing when lost connection at same time?
