<sob> I can see nothing but a bunch of diacritical E characters. I read my e- mail through a web-based interface that can read nothing more than Latin-1 text (and I find it OK, since it prevents strange e-mails containing HTML and viruses or whatever to bring their poisonous content to my computer). I could read them with Outlook Express, but every other day it cannot read my mailbox (like today), so it's pretty useless. So please, stick to Latin-1. If you want to use Unicode, direct us to webpages. My computer can read Unicode webpages with nearly no problem. Christophe. Take your life as a movie: do not let anybody else play the leading role.
