According to Sean Harris:

I'm afraid the answer hasn't really changed from 2-1/2 weeks ago.
ht://Dig only supports 8-bit character sets.
See http://www.htdig.org/FAQ.html#q4.10

This topic has been discussed many times on the list, and there are still
no volunteers to take on the huge amount of work it would require to
adapt ht://Dig for full Unicode support, and to add in the word splitting
algorithms needed for many Asian languages.
