Oo, my favourite! After about 20 years of the thing sitting on the book shelf, I finally got around to reading it. Awesome creation myth!

Kerno, most likely; possibly Talarian.

Easily handled. Whoever comes immediately before Frank must (if his language includes diacritics) send an ASCII version. I.e., replace [a-acute] with a', [s-carrot] with s^. That sort of thing. If Dalmatian uses diacritics that Frank can't create with his mailer, he'll have to do something similar for the next person.
