Somewhere in the menus of your email client (the software on your computer that receives and displays, and composes and sends your emails) is very likely a setting for "Encoding." For most of us Western hemisphere Windows-using emailers the more useful options are Unicode UTF-7, Unicode UTF-8, Western European (Windows) or Western European (ISO). If both sender and receiver are using the same encoding the email received will most likely look like that sent. With mismatched encoding it likely won't. With the 4 different encodings considered there are 16 possible combinations, 12 of which won't match and may look bad. I don't know what encoding Macs use by default. Unicode UTF-8 is one Mac option.

Richard, You must have been reading a single post as an email, or at the website? Because when you replied, the digest had not come through yet. Sure enough, in the digest, which came through right after I started this, what I see is this quoted line below (isn?t this true for everyone?) The apostrophe and all but the last quotation mark were changed to question marks. An interesting phenomenon. I use a thoroughly modern Mac. I mentioned Ann Z because I saw the question marks in her posts a lot. ?Tis a mystery. ??.. Here?s a test for this note: ?don?t!? cheers with no punctuation marks Jude (who loved Eats, Shoots & Leaves) _________________________________________________________________ Cohousing-L mailing list -- Unsubscribe, archives and other info at: http://www.cohousing.org/cohousing-L/
