Can somebody tell what's the support for international text on the site? Are descriptions and tags stored in Unicode format? Can they be in languages other than English, such as Hebrew? Most of my scripts are for Hebrew speakers, so it makes sense their descriptions would be in Hebrew as well. But will the site support it, both by storing the text correctly in the DB, and by displaying it correctly? (Note that Hebrew is a right-to-left language). It seems some people are posting Hebrew comments and they appear fine, but I wanted to know more about the mechanism in the background that makes it work.
Moreover, can the script's other metadata, i.e. name and summary, be in Hebrew?
PS. I just noticed the numerous small changes to the site: showing no. of installs, showing how many other scripts the author has, etc. Great work! It's becoming a true pleasure to edit and update metadata and scripts. The site is beginning to have a great feel to it.

I have to say that honestly, I've not done anything for unicode/international text yet. I also have to say that it appears to work: http://userscripts.org/scripts/show/7552

I believe we're running Rails 1.2 which has some multibyte support, so they should work. Do report it if there are cases when it doesn't, though.
Glad the small changes are appreciated.

It looks like there is support for unicode scripts. In fact, if you view the source of your script in firefox, it will display various characters, such as æ, ð, ə, ɛ, and ʃ. What your script doesn't appear to have is a valid greasemonkey header. It seems likely that this is the cause of any installation problems that you're having.
