I'm disappointed that Wireshark doesn't seem to support Unicode or 8-bit ASCII. I can understand Unicode is difficult to parse because each character isn't represented by a fixed number of bytes, but I don't see the excuse for not having 8-bit ASCII.
In any case, Unicode is the future, a lot of webpages are using it already and they come up as gibberish in Wireshark. If you follow a TCP stream there is even an option for viewing the now obsolete EBCDIC but no Unicode.
