I moved this in the beta section, 'cause Anderson wrote to translators tonight and said, amongst other things:
After working hard for a few days, Avant Browser support UNICODE now. I just released a new beta version:
http://www.avantbrowser.com/beta/absetupa.exe

Please try out this new version. I would appreciate if you could let me know this version works perfect in your system or not. Please also check out the translations I applied.

Installed and Unicode seems to be working good everywhere, pages, buttons, favorites and titlebar. Very good Anderson! 8)

I also noted new dialog buttons, with etched text and animation on hover, and ...favorites reset to alphabetical order... :?

Favorites are not saving, though: I had old favorites with unicode names and they started displaying correctly, but it looks like you cannot save favorites with Unicode names: try for example to save as a favorite the original, arabic-language Al-Jazeera home page (couldn't think of anything else to test...) http://www.aljazeera.net.

Also, if you rename a favorite to contain Unicode characters (I often use the blank character displayed by pressing Alt+255 on the numeric keypad, which is NOT a space, though it appears the same, to insert separators in the favorite list) the standard IE icon is used for that favorite, regardless of what's in the .url file, just try to rename a favorite with anything in its name NOT from the standard letters and numbers, ASCII 32 to 128.

Well, other Unicode pages save correctly, so it's probably an issue with just the Aljazeera site.

Whee! Arabic. This'll be a very popular upgrade, especially for Russian and Hebrew speakers.

This Beta [102] is really good, I may look the new the Buttons very much in >>Avant Browser Options<<

But otherwise in the good and whole the Avant Browser is very good.
