First, try the "Test Suite". cd to the base directory of john (the one 
where src, run and doc is) and:

$ git clone
$ cd test
$ ./ episerver

Unfortunately the TS currently has no codepage or UTF-8 tests for 
episerver. But this test is good anyway - cp1252 is close enough to 
iso-8859-1 that all tests should pass:

$ ./ episerver -passthru=-enc:cp1252

If all is good so far, we only have UTF-8 left to test. You can easily 
whip up some homebrewn test hashes using Perl. Have a look at (not in TS but in john run directory) for examples. Maybe 
you could even add episerver to
