mudpy handles input, output and formatting of UTF-8 encoded, multi-byte and wide characters, when coupled with a supporting client. By default, however, only printable single-byte ASCII characters are accepted or displayed unless the client negotiates binary mode first. If mudpy needs to send text containing extended characters to a non-binary (7-bit) client, it will first replace those characters with a question mark (?).

For example, the following is the recommended .telnetrc for interacting with mudpy in binary mode with the Netkit and Inetutils Telnet clients:

katarsis.mudpy.org set binary
katarsis.mudpy.org unset echo
katarsis.mudpy.org unset escape
katarsis.mudpy.org unset flushoutput
katarsis.mudpy.org unset interrupt
katarsis.mudpy.org unset quit
katarsis.mudpy.org unset eof
katarsis.mudpy.org unset localchars
