It's weird. Only replies by certain people to messages from certain other people seem to trigger the ?-substitution, but I haven't yet seen enough data to ascertain exactly who causes who to have the problem. We're all using text-only (non-HTML) mail clients, to do CONLANG-L stuff, right? Or wrong? I'm also assuming we're all using MIME. Quick experiment. Can Christophe send something with a variety of accents, to which Constentin replies, just to satisfy my curiosity? Other than that, we could all post with special characters, and all reply to everybodies posts, but that way lies madness. Paul
