Nope, it's you. Ethan's post is fine. He correctly quotes JMF stating 
"Voilà" (that's LATIN SMALL LETTER A WITH GRAVE), and Ethan's post 
correctly gives an encoding header:

Content-Type: text/plain; charset=iso-8859-1; format=flowed

(although, boo to Thunderbird for using a legacy encoding instead of 
UTF-8). So his post is fine. Whatever the problem is, it's at your end.
