    From a *practical* point of view, combining diacritical marks
    don't yet work well in current programs - at least for the
    Latin, Greek, and Cyrillic scripts. Test your browser(s) here:

    Whenever a precomposed letter exists, use that one.


    But even "normal" Latin-1 characters in the header (Subject)
    will lead ultimately to results like this:
    <news:f51313ef-20db-4727-b4c6-6590e017bfb6@m3g2000hsc.googlegroups.com>
    http://groups.google.com/group/de.etc.sprache.deutsch/msg/54d3f0681c184959
    Use only ASCII characters in the Subject.


    For a surprise, view

    with Internet Explorer 6 (six).
