You are right.  I just commited a better fix that will make it
easier to maintain "html specials".  Please test.

By the way, I have a question concerning this.
I thought `@'s have been converted to @ to avoid
address collecting (SPAM), haven't it?

I added this in v2.6.0 as a default form of obfsucation.  Previous
versions did not do this.

Yes and no.  There are resources (SPAMMODE, ADDRESSMODIFYCODE) that
can be used to do obfsucation if it is really needed, so I see leaving
@ alone by default as okay.

You are correct with the respect of being "iso-2022-jp-aware".  However,
I do not see a simple solution to this, so I think reverting back
to past behavior of leaving '@' alone is sufficient.
