Non-UTF-8 won't work well in the GUI, or in TShark output if your locale doesn't use the encoding in question as the text encoding; UTF-8 *should* work in the GUI with GTK+ 2.x and later (if not, I'd argue there's a bug somewhere), but might not work in TShark if your locale doesn't use UTF-8 as the text encoding (perhaps we should make TShark, at least on UN*X, convert -T text output to the locale's text encoding using iconv).
The sample capture I was using is
The manuf entry for that is (escaped):
And, actually, Wireshark displays it pretty much like Unidecode() does:
I guess there is no problem after all... (Well, unless there IS some
non-UTF8 in there.)
