[tex-live] XeLaTeX with WinEdt in UTF-8 on Windows

As you can see in WinEdt's webpages, unicode is not its strong point. It 
seems that the latest betas have some support for it, but I don't know 
how good it is (I tried it sometime ago very quickly, but couldn't use 
it -- but I didn't try a lot!).
I have used WinShell for unicode texts under Windows with success, and 
it is rather easy to configure "user-defined" commands.
