i don't know for certain, but which operating system and which language is tom venetianer using on his computer?

some non-english systems may need extra characters (in addition to standard ascii), and there is no single standard for encoding those extra characters, which can cause confusion and problems.

there may be a preference somewhere to force messages to be sent as plain ascii, but that would have to be set on a case-by-case basis for each different user's configuration - not a fun task, and probably well outside the scope of this list.

a modest suggestion to the moderator: please "bounce" such messages back to the sender whenever you notice them. the senders are the ones best able to fix the message, plus this may encourage them to fix the root of the problem, by finding and changing the appropriate option.

It beats me why the JewishGen server "translated" the capital 'F'
into =46. So here are the corrections of the list I sent yesterday:

=46ISCH is FISCH =46elso:zsolcsa is Felso:zsolcsa and =46add is Fadd


Moderator VK: This is not an uncommon problem. Can anyone explain?
