Displaying the Math::Symbolic pod page with load_file() gets a warning, utf8 "\xFC" does not map to Unicode at /usr/share/perl5/Gtk2/Ex/PodViewer/ line 314, <FILE> line 560. which appears to be a complaint about latin-1 in Math::Symbolic. I think Gtk2::Ex::PodViewer::Parser shouldn't assume pod is utf8. There's a bit in perlpodspec about BOM, then first high-bit for utf8, otherwise latin1 (though I actually thought it was latin1 whenever no "=encoding"). Perhaps Pod::Parser or Pod::Simple can be asked to take care of it either way, since various consumers of a parse want to know the charset, or have it as wide chars.
