Yes, in the previous go around I found 1252 solved it. Unfortunately,
there's no way in Sylpheed to change the character set from the default
permanently (the setting in Common Prefs doesn't do it). I was raising

characters rendered between 2.2.7 and 2.3.0beta.  Previously they
showed as empty squares.
