for me with Thunderbird on Windows.  For instance,
   Raúl Núñez de Arenas (Raúl Núñez de Arenas)
is transmitted as

and displayed as
   Raúl Núñez de Arenas



This already looks like UTF-8 -- you should be able to verify this by
manually selecting UTF-8 as encoding from the menu.


I found the per-message setting and selecting utf-8 fixed it.


If the Content-Type still uses us-ascii though, it should be fixed to
specify UTF-8 instead.


Email from the tracker specifies utf-8. Thunderbird must assume latin-8 
for non-ascii in a message specified as ascii.

[Python-Dev] Use utf-8 charset for tracker summaries?

2016-03-11 Thread Terry Reedy
The weeky 'Summariy of Python tracker Issues' ('tracker' should be 
capitalized if 'Issues' is) starts with


Content-Type: text/plain; charset="us-ascii"
Content-Transfer-Encoding: quoted-printable

Names sometimes have not-ascii chars, and they do not get properly 
displayed for me with Thunderbird on Windows.  For instance,

  Raúl Núñez de Arenas (Raúl Núñez de Arenas)
is transmitted as
  Ra=C3=BAl N=C3=BA=C3=B1ez de= Arenas
and displayed as
  Raúl Núñez de Arenas

I am rather sure that this does not happen with email sent to me by the 
tracker itself.
