Unicode for Pegasus Mail

   I use Pegasus e-mail <http://www.pegasus.usa.com> under Microsoft
Windows N T as my e-mail client, and I like it, so I recently wrote
to the author, David Harris, to ask if he had any plans to include
Unicode support in his product.

   He replied, in part, "U T F-8 hasn't been standardized as a MIME
encoding yet as far as I know [...] As soon as I can find an R F C
that formally describes the way U T F-8 should be handled, I'll
include such support as I can for it."

   That's good news, so I tried to find an R F C to point him to; but
all I could see was R F C 1641 (at, e g,
<ftp://ftp.isi.edu/in-notes/rfc1641.txt>), which seems seriously out
of date.

   What should I be pointing him at? Pegasus is a Microsoft-only
product, so the answer might be an R F C, Internet Draft, or a
Microsoft-specific resource.

   Thanks in advance for any help ...
