-Summary: Problems with danish chars in X.509 certificate
+Summary: X.509 certificates does not support T61STRING (Teletex) encoding
 I have a certificate where the common name contains the following danish 
 word "Møbelhandel".
 OpenSSL and Windows certificate browser are both able to show this word 
 correctly, but when I call the X509Certificate.SubjectName property, I 
 just get "Mbelhandel". The danish 'ø' character is missing.

 Both the CN and O contains "Møbelhandel" and are (both) encoded as
 TeletexString - which isn't supported in Mono implementation.
 Any reason for not using UTF8 ?

+[conclusion from email discussions]
+* OpenSSL seems to prefer encoding into T61STRING even if UTF8STRING
+was specified (along with T61STRING as accepted encoding);
+* Changing this is possible but the certificates already issued are
+still T61STRING encoded when non-ASCII characters are used.
