It happens when mail software (such as that which runs the mailing
list) simply inserts its own signature in its own encoding without
paying attention to the encoding the user has chosen.

So this means that sometimes you have seen same strange fonts on other
users email posting on this ML?

I have seen it elsewhere, such as on the Linux kernel mailing lists
(which is using Majordomo).


Oh! Many thanks indeed, I was getting crazy trying to modify my settings
to resolve this occurrence!
