Description Tethys 2003-06-17 17:18:57 UTC
Description of problem:

When viewing Red Hat Bugzilla email, it every character is followed
by a dotted square. This is because it's treating the message as
normal ASCII/Latin1 text, rather than the UTF-8 that it is (and
that's stated in the headers).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Look at a RH bugzilla email in exmh
Actual results:
See attached screenshot

Expected results:

Additional info:
This is with RH9. Curiously, though, if I ssh into an RH7 box with
exmh-2.4-2, and run it X displaying to my local machine, it all looks
fine, and seems to handle the UTF8 without problems. The only relevant
environment variable are $LANG (which is en_US on RH7.2 and en_US.UTF-8
on RH9) an $LC_COLLATE (which shouldn't be relevant, but is set to C on
both machines).
