input conversion failed

Hello Everyone;

Sometimes when indexing HTML using the HTML2 backend,
I get messages like these from SWISH-E:

input conversion failed due to input error
Bytes: 0x25 0x00 0x61 0x3E

I know that it's multi-byte files  that are causing
the errors. Does anyone know  if there's an easy
workaround to avoid getting these, for example, to
detect that a file is multi-byte in your -S prog and
not index it?

Interested to hear ideas on this subject.

Incidentally, these messages are output while indexing
in non-verbose mode (no -v on command line), and don't
indicate which file caused the error-- it would be
cool if they did!

Do you Yahoo!?
