Question on encoding Re: ML4 (was Re: TECH: Testing again etc.)

How is this post encoded? My computer had been set for Western European, and it
was a nightmare, so I figured it was in Unicode, but when I reset it, though it
looked mostly right, there were still several empty "boxes".

Have we established a standard here of indicating encoding in our posts? If not, it
would be great. :-)

[< A pretty thing. Just a couple of comments: why do you use such a counterintuitive orthography? _ò_ for a [2] and _ą_ for a [O] seem rather arbitrary. And I would recommend to substitute t-comma-below with t-cedilla _ţ_, because t-comma-below has a bit dubious status (nobody knows for sure if they are the same or not). -- Yitzik --------------------------------- Do you Yahoo!?
