I saw this perfectly in the copy I got directly --- but the listserv mangled an 0xA0 into byte an 0x20. (There wasn't any 0x8C bytes this time). (On the other hand, Emacs is being balky, insisting on putting in weird ISO 2022 codes when I send without QP --- so I won't).

I'll just quote the upper quarter of Latin-1 here. When sent as UTF-8, it will use all the byte values from 0x80 to 0xBF...
