[code] [textadept] Defining chars above 127 as non word_chars

Hello everybody.

I am stuck with a little problem. In its default configuration,
Scintilla/Textadept considers all the characters above 127 as word
characters. Obviously this is not really the case: in particular the
quotes « and » (normal in many languages) should be treated as
punctuation characters. The problem is that the presence or absence of
chars above 127 seems to be ignored in buffer.word_chars. If I delete
from it the character "a", "a" becomes a non-word character; but if I
delete string.char(171) and string.char(187) (that is « and »), nothing
seems to change. Perhaps there is something related to encoding that I
should know? Also the documentation of Scintilla does not explain
more. Can anybody help me?

Thank you very much!
