On somewhat related topic, is there a way to search the internet using 
non-english (indic to be more specific) language using popular (or less 
popular will also do) search engines ?
e.g Rather than entering "ramayan" in google can I enter ?????? , and 
still get relevant results ?

For above to work, search engines will have to index UTF-8 data, and 
user will have to query using UTF-8

What other problems does one see ?
