228Meta: message encoding
- Sep 7, 2002If anyone is having trouble with accented characters and the like not
displaying properly in your e-mail client, be aware that the fault lies
in the poster's e-mail client being set to a platform-specific encoding
scheme (e.g., "Windows-1251/Windows Latin 1") instead of a
standards-based scheme (e.g., "ISO-8859-1/ISO Latin 1"). To
compensate, you may need to temporarily set your e-mail client to use a
different, compatible encoding to display any problematic messages. You
can also go to the Lambengolmor message archives on the web at:
http://groups.yahoo.com/group/lambengolmor/ to see the message
displayed with the proper encoding.
I encourage all list members who are able to do so to set your e-mail
client to use a standards-based encoding scheme (such as ISO-8859-1/ISO
Latin 1) for all messages you send to the list.
