   <para>UTF-8 based locales are not supported well by many programs. E.g., the
   <command>watch</command> program displays only ASCII characters in UTF-8
   locales and has no such restriction in traditional 8-bit locales like en_US.
-  Without patches and/or installing software beyond BLFS, in UTF-8 based locales
-  you will not be able to do such basic tasks as printing plain-text files from
-  the command line, recording Windows-readable CDs with filenames containing
-  non-ASCII characters, viewing ID3v1 tags in MP3 files and so on. Work is in
-  progress to document and, if possible, fix such problems, see
-  <ulink url="&blfs-root;view/svn/introduction/locale-issues.html"/>.
-  It is, however, safe to use UTF-8 based locales if you are going to use only
-  KDE or GNOME and never open the terminal.</para>
