Hey Mark!

MK> In reality there was; the codes within his quotes were indeed utf-8
ML> you cannot count on that.

Apparently I can. That actually surprised me when I saw it firsthand but there
they were as plain as day. I am still suffering from mild shock over it. Just
when I thought it was safe to go back into the water too. :-/

ML> we wouldn't have this chrs compatibility "DOS think" problem

Right. Granted I am the last one that would speak on behalf of DOS-think but
there appears to be at least one DOS-think editor that got it right. It
doesn't appear to be accidental either. What are the odds against that

ML> while your observations may be validated, the presumptions are
ML> flawed

So what is the correct presumption?

Life is good,

This forum contains echomail areas hosted on Nightmare BBS You can browse local echomail areas, italian fidonet areas and a selection of international fidonet areas, reading messages posted by users in Nightmare BBS or even other BBSs all over the world. You can find file areas too (functional to fidonet technology). You can browse echomail areas and download files with no registration, but if you want to write messages in echomail areas, or use fidonet netmail (private messages with fidomet technology), you have to register. Only a minimal set of data is required, functional to echomail and netmail usage (name, password, email); a registration and login with facebook is provided too, to allow easy registration. If you won't follow rules (each echomail areas has its own, regularly posted in the echomail), your account may be suspended;
