    I didn't get you. By default Yahoo doesn't let you use UTF-8 encoding. So if
    I send you or a mil to yahoo groups, written in Indic language, you have to
    change the encoding of your browser to UTF-8 manually. Also if you use Yahoo
    Mail as your mail editor, I have to change character encoding to UTF-8 to
    read your texts.

    Did you check Yahoo's new webmail (inspired by Google)? That supports UTF-8
    by default.

    be a member of UTC. I'm afraid there is anyone from Yahoo in this list.
