I just encountered a C0 control in one of John Cowan's always
entertaining signatures, in a plain text e-mail. Well, the source was
actually "Fran=1B)B=E7ois Yergeaus" but the "=1B" is a quoted-printable
encoded form of U+001B. I'm not sure what the display intention was as
Mozilla made no attempt to render it properly.
