Apparently just when you include Unicode; this one had no line breaks. None
of the IPA showed up.
With ref. to the trials that Taliesin sent: vowel-macrons OK, haceks OK in
his version, not when copied into another msg. Hardly any IPA; Cyrillic and
Greek OK, but whatever was in between no (Georgian?). The last string OK
thru eng, but there was a box after that.
OTOH Tim May's Georgian and other chars. came thru, for the most part.
AFAIC it's a puzzlement :-((( I have to use MSN for my email, and its
treatment of unicode seems pretty random; some msgs come thru fine, others
not, even when I switch the encoding.
So, long live CXS!!
