Re: CHARSET considerations

Hi Laurence -

     Perhaps all that is needed is a list in the system .pinerc file of all
the valid charsets, and not let the user set her charset to one that is not in
the list.  So, perhaps Pine could have US-ASCII, ISO-2022-JP, and the various
ISO-8859-x sets wired in as an initial list, and the system file specify
additional valid sets?

     The concern is to avoid letting users do things like set it to things
such as ``Latin-1'' or ``ASCII'' or similar bogons...

     What do you think?
