Informix's products (afaik) have been 8-bit clean for ages, (well, I've
been using their database to store 8-bit data for a while now - ESQL/C
& SE 2.0 upwards).  What sort of problems are you seeing?  Is it
possibly to do with the mapping between your national 7-bit "ascii"
character set and the ISO-8859/1 8-bit one?  This isn't really an
Informix problem; it's to do with the display you're using on your
terminals.

I don`t have any problems with ISO8859-1 charcters, but there is a
sofware manufacturer who keeps on telling his customers that there
is a problem.
