The message headers on his email included:
Content-Type: text/plain; charset=UTF-8
Apparently your email reading software decided to ignore this and it showed
you the bytes of the message interpreted as ISO-8859-1, windows-1252,
MacRoman, or some such single-byte encoding. The "something something" is,
at a lower level, 2 bytes that, in UTF-8, mean the single character known in
Unicode as LATIN SMALL LIGATURE OE, or U+0153. It should look like "o"
joined to "e". In windows-1252 it's at 0x9C. In MacRoman, 0xCF.
Interestingly, your own message's headers included this humorous line:
X-Bloated-Content-Warning: Quotational content of 85% far exceeds
recommended daily dosage
