    The first was wrong (ASCII), but the #2 message should've had CHRS: UTF-8, no?

    Thanks for the reply. Unfortunately, the msg subject (which was the purpose of the test) got tweaked in the process.

    The original subject was (in hex):
    EF BC A3 EF BD 81 EF BD 8E 20 EF BC B9 EF BD 8F EF BD 95 20 EF BC B2 EF BD 85 EF BD 81 EF BD 84 20 EF BC B4 EF BD 88 EF BD 89 EF BD 93 3F 20 23 32

    Wildfred's reply subject (the same thing with "Re: " prepended):
    52 65 3A 20 EF BC A3 EF BD 81 EF BD 8E 20 EF BC B9 EF BD 8F EF BD 95 20 EF BC B2 EF BD 85 EF BD 81 EF BD 84 20 EF BC B4 EF BD 88 EF BD 89 EF BD 93 3F 20 23 32

    ... and your message header:

    Nope, I quoted the kludges. There's a CHRS: CP437 2...

    But this one does have a "@CHRS: UTF-8 4" kludge!

    No, Both were CP437.

    You'r welcome.

    The reason the subject line was messed up in my first reply is that Golded tried to translate the "CP437" into UTF-8. Garbage in, more garbage out. ;-)

    BTW, I can read the text in the subject line, but the letters look different. Thye look a bit smaller than the rest and there is a "space" between the latters.

    What IS it?

    They're Unicode "fullwidth" Latin characters. And by "fullwidth", they mean double-wide. :-)
