Just checking on this -
given that my final output is a webpage that is iso-8859-1 encoded,
what advice is there for producing good output from mhonarc -scan ?

That is not what I want -- I want it to produce the subject like the

-scan is for terminal-based examination of archive contents.
It does not invoke CHARSETCONVERTERS since CHARSETCONVERTERS is
designed for conversion to HTML, not plain text.
Will you provide more information on how you utilize -scan output?
It may help in determining what the best solution to your problem is.
I use it to create a web page that has an index of the last 20 posts.
mhonarc -scan output is parsed and rewritten by a perl script
everytime there is a new post.
Thanks for your advice,
BTW, if iso-8859-1 is the default encoding for the messages you
archive, you may want to look at the DECODEHEADS resource. You could
instruct mhonarc to decode the non-ASCII encoded text before storing
the data in the archive. Therefore, when doing -scan, the non-encoded
form the text will be shown.
I'm not clear on this. Given that I'm creating a web page,
do you think this is the right way?
