Re: UTF-8 versus utf8

Why does <http://cygwin.com/cygwin-ug-net/setup-locale.html> talk
all about a charset of UTF-8, then "For a list of locales supported
by your Windows machine, use the new locale -a command", which
shows "utf8" (which matches my XP machine)?
So why doesn't "locale -a" report the canonical name?
Btw, what did you mean by "utf8 (which matches my XP machine)"
That page points to
<http://cygwin.com/cygwin-ug-net/using-utils.html#locale>, which gives
sample output of "locale -a" that has only utf8. I was trying to
express that "locale -a" run under Cygwin on my XP machine agrees with
thtat in outputting "utf8".
