You can output UTF8 as binary, yes. Maybe as strings too (I'm not really
using those so I wouldn't know). But to give an example, can you search
inside your UTF8 text for the word "trouvé" including all different
variants of the é character (perhaps even just 'e')? Byte search isn't
doing any good here.
