localconf.php and SiteName
Please implement the String regarding the Typo3 sitename
(localconf.php -> $TYPO3_CONF_VARS['SYS']['sitename'])
in the Database and not as a "text Element" in the
localconf.php like cause encoding with german umlauts can be the hell if you use a unicode linux system (that means keyboard,terminal ,file encoding & filesystem are completley based on UTF-8) and the localconf.php has a (for example) latin1 encoding.If you edit the localconf.php and the file encoding is latin1 (even if you set your preferred editor like vi to latin1 encoding) you can't change the "umlaut" (cause the low-level linux kbd driver is set to unicode) without destroying it's representation in the web browser.Then you've a mixed encoding (a-zA-z = latin1,umlaut=utf8) which you can't
convert with recode or iconv or similar tools.
It would be the best (in my opinion) to implement this completely in the database because then you have a real abstraction layer of the encoding (similar to the VFS in the Linux Kernel;)
