The AOLserver 4.0 i18n work was inspired by/based on the AD API, so there shouldn't be many problems. In the 4.0 draft documentation - http://aolserver.com/40drafts/tclapi/ - you'll see ns_charsets, ns_encodingforcharset, ns_cookiecharset, etc. No one has written documentation for these yet, but perhaps someone from the OpenACS community will find the time to contribute it.

Mark, In terms of support by openacs.org I would say there are a number of us who have been using 4.0 regularly through the beta period so there is plenty of expertise about how to get it to work (and I have not encountered any problems with it since beta10 I think).
I believe internally AOL has cut over to 4.0 (digitalcity.com definitely has, not sure about other sites) so I am pretty confident it has gotten a good workout and is production ready.
Yes, I think we should switch to 4.0 as the recommended version although I am not sure we can get the install docs revised in time for 5.0 so it might happen with 5.1.
