I'm trying to download a file in UTF-8 with libcurl(1.3.5) and GHC 6.12:

>import Network.Curl

>u = "http://www.cl.cam.ac.uk/~mgk25/ucs/examples/UTF-8-demo.txt"
>main = curlGetString u [] >>= putStrLn . snd

Which doesn't print the characters correctly. If i read the file from local
storage with getFile it is displayed properly.
