Indeed. Are you using the latest version, 0.8.4? But the problem is
almost certainly with your webmail program. Unfortunately many webmail
programs are full of bugs, which is a good reason for using POP mail and
a proper mail program - although webmail has big advantages for people
who travel without computers.

The problem then is with your webmail program.

Hebrew shows up correctly in the archives when it is correctly encoded
in the original message, as you can confirm by viewing the archives with
Camino. But it doesn't show Hebrew properly when that Hebrew is not
properly encoded, as in your past postings. And in some of your recent
postings you have the same problem with smart quotes - look in the
archives at your own posting on Aramaic in Babylonia starting "To get
the peripheral subject out of the way first". (And there is also a word
wrap problem, which may also be something to do with your webmail program.)
Interestingly, Karl, you were able to send Hebrew correctly encoded this
time, by using Hebrew (Windows-1255) encoding, which your webmail system
probably chose because you were replying to my message in that same
