Markus, Gürbetal

(and maybe you can now read the "ue" in Gürbetal, as I send this message
in ISO-8859-1 instead of the worldwide usual UTF-8)
Sorry, but one needs to fulfil more conditions than just signing in. I do so to read my subscribed Yahoo Groups on their website, and like previous posters reported, email addresses are *always* truncated and *some* posters' use of accented characters is rendered as code instead. Don't know what those additional conditions are - choice of 'view' type in Yahoo preferences??

(Don't ask me the technicalities, but FWIW I use the ALT+4 digit number method of inserting accented characters from my UK English keyboard - for example ALT+0252 = u + umlaut which would give "Gürbetal" )
