AA>> Yeah.. I noticed that when the message got saved. Is that because of
AA>> TB's limitation at "UTF-8 4" and not supporting "UTF-8 16" ?

MvdV> UTF-8 16? Do you mean UTF16?

I was referring to something that I vaguely remembered when someone here
mentioned that the charset kludge that Thunderbird was using here was incorrect
as "utf-8 2". And I even remembered THAT wrong and wrote "UTF-8 4" in my
message. Sad

MvdV> UTF16 is not usable in Fidonet as a UTF16 sequence often contains
MvdV> NULL bytes and the NULL byte (00)is used in Fidonet to signal the end

Ah.. Good to know. UTF-8 is good enough.

MvdV> Hé now I see it upside down! (32bit Windows version of Vi)

As long as my little foray into the upside down world is still allowed, then
