Replacing LMBCS-based encoding for DocumentContext

Currently for web agents, any post is captured using the session.DocumentContext.  From this, one can extract and populate Notes fields.  However, the encoding currently only support Lotus Multi-Byte Character Set (LMCBS) and any UTF-8 characters after extraction become garbage when store in a Notes form.  Any use of web agents to post data to the Domino server will not be able to handle UTF-8 characters properly.  This is an issue especially for non-English locale. It has been a point of frustration.  If Domino is to be a first-class Web application server it need to have an option to encode to UTF-8 instead of LMBCS.
