In the documentation for wb, also called clifox, it says that
bugs/comments etc. should be sent to wb at braille.uwo.ca. However, I got a
server timeout.

I installed wb on a virtual machine, to not mess up my main system. The
problem I wanted to report, is that special characters, like a Norwegian
ø is not displayed at all. Hope that could be fixed. Hope also
that the list server is back again soon.

Thanks and regards,
