If you want to use Unicode, use UTF-8 encoding.
Still expect people to be unable to read Unicode (e.g. because they
use a text terminal that cannot display Unicode) although UTF-8 seems to
be transmitted by the Listserv correctly. So it's wise to include some
alternative transscription, too. Also expect that all Unicodes might come
out the same, e.g., all look like a question mark. Then a glossary like
? = o acute,
? = o grave
does not help...
If you don't really need Unicode (like in your first post), then try
stick to ISO-8859-1 instead of transmitting UTF-8 -- more people will
be able to read the accented chars then.
Enjoy the list! :-)
