Re: Bad Character

It seems clear that Yvan's mailer uses a cascading automatic character
set selector, using the smallest char set that includes all the
characters in a given message, to maximize legibility in legacy,
non-Unicode-aware mail programs.

The ellipsis does not exist in ASCII or Latin-1 - but it does exist in
Windows-1252, which is a slight superset of Latin-1 because it uses
decimal codes 128-159 for characters instead of control codes.

The message as quoted by Yvan below is perfectly valid and has the
intended ellipsis char, so the charset confusion originated elsewhere.
