It would be nice if mail to the Pine list were in a form that it could
be read by Pine. Latin-1??????
Okay ... how's this? There's NO CHARSET= parameter in this case.
Is it any better?
This starts a different thread. One that belongs in the
MIME spec discussion list more than in the Pine discussion list.
I maintain that US-ASCII (and ISO-8859-1 and most others) are not
the best choice for character set description. Latin-1 is valid on
systems where ISO-8859-1 is not. ISO-8859-1 means Latin-1 characters,
but also means a specific bit pattern representation of those characters.
Dan, I'm surprised that you report trouble reading "CHARSET=
Latin-1" mail with Pine. I read such mail with 3.05 all the time.
Which version of Pine are you running?
