Why? I would like to use UTF-8 in the 8-bit encoding on the e-mail
connection! The email systems are today sufficiently 8-bit transparent
since all the sendmail security upgrades, and even if not, my ESMTP
software would encode the 8-bit UTF-8 as on the fly as quoted printable
UTF-8 in the few very rare cases where the other side speaks only old
Cosmetic bug report: The correct notation is UTF-8 and not UTF8.
Communicator 4.0 menus lack the hyphen, and since many people will hear
about UTF-8 the first time by seeing it in Netscape menues, it would
be very useful if you could fix this typo. Thanks!
