What steps will reproduce the problem?
1. Use -t art with non-ASCII 7 bits chars.
2. Rendering is buggy for boxed and underlined titles.

As the ASCII Art target is in fact a more important feature than I was thinking 
at first, I think this should be fixed (hacked ?) before release.

This is a bug that affects txt2tags, not just Art. See:

$ echo -e "\n=áéíóú=" | txt2tags -i- -o- -H -t txt


This needs to be investigated, and I guess even more UTF-8 issues will raise 
when trying to fix this. No way it's a good idea to tackle this now :)

Fixed in r739, r741 and r742.
Just try :
$ echo -e "\n=áéíóú=" | ./txt2tags -i- -o- -H -t aat
$ echo -e "\n=áéíóú=" | ./txt2tags -i- -o- -H --width 10 -t aat
$ echo -e "\n=áéíóú=" | ./txt2tags -i- -o- -H --width 6 -t aat

To make the examples work, add the --encoding utf-8 option to the command line.
