Are you sure it's the mail list that did the mangling? As I got the
post, it had two parts, plain-text in ISO-8859-1, with '<<' and '>>'
substituted for the guillemets '' and '', and HTML, also in
ISO-8859-1, with character entities &laquo; and &raquo;. I suspect
Philippe's e-mail client may be at fault.
