-- Got it. Thank you. Looks like there is an issue with some Apple
email clients (iPhone and Outlook for IOS).

thing. I would send it to you, but when he sent me the "messed up"
digest, it looked absolutely FINE on both my Android phone and in
Thunderbird on Windows 10!!

When you reply to a message, your Mail client adds an In-Reply-To:

a. He thinks that the Digest message formatting is messed-up as it
originally comes from the list, but he is not sure (reply messages might
be messing up the formatting).
b. He is using iPhone and Outlook for Apple email clients.
c. He is also experiencing quote marks (") and apostrophes (') being
turned into question marks (?) throughout the text of digest messages.
Is this mess a function of his Apple email clients, or a problem that
rests with the Mailman list management software?
The replacement of quote marks (") and apostrophes (') with question
marks (?) is an issue with the mail client that creates the message. The
issue is they aren't ascii quotes and apostrophes. The quotes are
unicode left and right double quotes and the apostrophes are unicode
right single quotes. These characters are not ascii so they are replaced
by question marks in an ascii plain text digest. They should render OK
in messages in a MIME format digest, but then the pnone client may not
do a reasonable job of rendering a MIME format digest.
As far as whether the digest formatting is "messed up", I'd need to see
an actual digest message to comment further.
