Chronicle 4.6-2 fixes another UTF-8 encoding issue

Today I was playing with some RDF information, initially triggered by my entry about Josephine. While at it I decided to add some information explicitly to the head tag, including

Obviously I wanted to add those two tags to my templates, so Chronicle adds that to all files. Unfortunately this resulted in an encoding error of the "ä". Some digging in the source of chronicle showed, that HTML::Template-new() was called without ensuring, that the tempalte files were parsed as UTF-8 encoded. The solution was to add a filter.

The just uploaded version 4.6-2 contains the required patch and if you don't use the Debian packages you won't be left out for long, as Steve already applied the fix upstream.
