In the message below everyone will see question marks.
Because Chris originally did not read the message using
Unicode, so when he replied, his reply substituted question
marks for characters he could not read.  However, Karl's
message below was sent using unicode:

as can be seen from the "Content-Type" header above.  I just made
a test with my Yahoo account.  Yahoo Accounts now has a "Beta"

you have to select an Encoding of "Unicode (UTF-8)" for it to work.
