Ansi is the way Windows encode accented characters, known as ISO-8859-1.
ASCII is / was the way MS-DOS used it, I guess probably Codepage 850.for
western european languages.

btw. I will definitly build a new german voice file when the deutsch.lang
file will contains all the new entries.

I already made a L&H Stephan German voice file, but I had to use some
traingsIn English because they were not yet present in deutsch.lang.
My German is not so good so I can't update the file myself with the correct
German words.

Is ANSI even a character set? Do you mean ASCII? My knowledge of
character sets isn't too good. :) If you do mean ASCII, it would seem
that some of the required symbols are not present in ASCII; Python gives
errors to that effect when I try to convert the file. What is the
standard, non-Unicode encoding for German?
Arnaud, do you want to upload a new German voice file with Max? I took
mine down due to its errors, and it seems you have a better handle on
this than I. I also can't test it as I don't know German.
