My understanding of the YAML spec (Character Encodings)
is that UTF8 is the default encoding.
Different unicode encodings are supported by using various byte order marks.
No non-unicode encodings are supported at all.

Unfortunately it looks like you'll have to use something other than
YAML - though HTML::FormFu does use Config::Any, so will support a
variety of other file formats.
