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! :-) **Henrik
