Hey Sergey!

SS> What exactly is worse with the North American sites' word wrapping?

This didn't take too long. Compare the tagline of this;

http://fidonet.ozzmosis.com/echomail.php/ftsc_public/0e9e6f0866fab52f.html

to this;

http://fghi.pp.ru/?area://FTSC_PUBLIC?msgid=1:261/38.9+ff0000a8

Both are utf-8 of the exact same earlier reply to you. Note the broken word
wrapping on fidonet.ozzmosis.com which is a server based in La Brea California.
It isn't exactly up to snuff utf8-wise is it? fghi.pp.ru on the otherhand
nailed it perfectly.

Imagine a pure Russian utf-8 message in comparison and even thought the correct
characters on fidonet.ozzmosis.com would be displayed the word wrapping of the
entire message would be screwy wouldn't it? I doubt it needs to be proved
though as the tagline clearly shows.

Life is good,
Maurice
