-codepage is also supported by mbas for compiling VB.NET in Mono. But
beware that you may have to set things indirectly: in web.config,
unless you precompile.

If you can't dig the details on online documentation (msdn and Mono
sites & mailing-lists archives), ask again here.

As I'm currently working a lot with Java and even fixing Java VMs
(JamVM/Kaffe) and GNU Classpath code, I think I may partly borrow the
title (Javaman) from my friend Bruno Souza and become the
MonoNJavaMan. Yeah, I may currently be crazier than usual...
