Well, attached is a Yahoo groups form (saved by my browser) similar to
the one which caused me problems.
I probably left the language selection as "English" which might have
contributed to the problem at the server end; but then most of my text
was English and I was quoting a few words in a language not listed. The
field I was trying to fill in was 'textarea name="message"', line 174 -
which has some data already filled in, none that I have added in this
case. This uses 'form method="post"', line 122. There doesn't seem to be
any encoding specified; Mozilla has defaulted to Windows-1252.
