Good selection of characters, but I don't recall if any of them were previously mangled. Also I don't recall whether attachments made it through unscathed. I think there would have been outright rioting in the street if they didn't. I *do* know that parts of the Georgian alphabet did get mangled, but I distrust this webmail client to send them properly -- it is worse at Unicode than the (old?) Listserv. Anyone care to give it a whirl? If nobody steps up to the plate, I can send a test message from a real email client (Opera) when I get home. Paul
