OK. Glad I was not the only one confused :)

First of all, apologies to Solar for wrong mailing list usage.
Anyway, I have documented it here and post it to john-rules and updated

Hopefully, this will fix my sin ;)

Thanks magnum!

Yes, it's CP852, CP1250, ISO-8859-2 and of course UTF-8.
Also, does it support stripping of special characters, so for example š
becomes s, č becomes c, etc..?
Also, I'm interested - in what charset I should write rules? So, they
can be automatically converted?

Thanks in advance,
