Greetings to all...
In regard to: the LZJU90 transfer encoding for MIME.
I have pondered the request to not use utf-8 and use base64.
Just saying that there are too many charsets out there is not a good enough
reason to not use utf-8. UTF-8 is a good char set and MIME knows about it.
LZJU90 uses UTF-8 because brain dead mailers will only understand the 7 bit
ascii subset of UTF-8 where mailers that understand utf-8 will make better use
of the encoder.
In this way, LZJU90 and FS will ALWAYS work.
This is a major goal and objective of both LZJU90 and FS.
Does every mailer know 7 bit ascii (possibly not) BUT many more know it than
base 64 or 85.
Could someone expand on the reason utf-8 should be not used?
