Hi list and Hiro,
I frequently get this error:
> Code Conversion Error
> Can't convert the character encoding of the message body from UTF-8 to ISO-8859-1.
> Send it as UTF-8 anyway?
When I select yes, the message is encoded as UTF-8. What does this
mean? I seem to see it in at least two different scenarios: when
responding to certain messages with missing or incorrect character
encoding headers, and occasionally when pasting stuff copied from the
web into an outgoing message.
'Common Preferences / Display / Outgoing encoding' is set to 'Automatic
The problem is discussed here:
but the last message is is over a year old, and the only solution is to
change the aforementioned setting to UTF-8. This solves the problem,
but is this indeed actually the recommended setting?
I note that something similar was discussed on this list about a year
and a half ago, with regard to ISO-8859-16:
but Hiro seemed to think that he'd solve the problem by adding support
for that particular ISO, which "seems to be relatively new":
ISO-8859-1 certainly isn't new.
