Yahoogroups is very popular in Turkey and this has increased
the usage of “*.yahoo” addresses in emails.
In Turkey about 95% of the webpages are composed with Turkish ISO.
Personal settings should be 95% TrISO too.
Yahoo somehow is incompatible with three unique Turkish
Letters, ı(U0130,U0131), ş(U015E and F) and ğ(U007E and F).
Yahoo originating mails arrive at Turkish ISO machines as almost
YahooMail-Beta has two sections; Main page with fixed UTF-8 coding
and messages sections where encoding is adjustable.
Compose Tab is a part of the main section and messages from Yahoo
are received as unlegible. “ışığı” comes as “¹º¹»¹”
The coding whitewashed “Latin3 ISO”. (Picture Attached)
I intend to send two more emails with different coding problems.
I have collected some data and sample email correspondance and shall
willingly cooperate to help solve the problem.

There are several problems with the keyboard input and YM.
I am aware of these:
- Romanian characters S and T with comma below cannot be entered from
keyboard (a question mark will appear instead), but they can be copied
and pasted from other Unicode application; the recipient sees them
correctly, assuming the font used has the required glyphs
- the AltGr key is treated as Ctrl key in the first place, so that it
is impossible to generate:
- character A with breve, using the Romanian (Programmers) keyboard
layout available in Windows Vista
- character A with diaeresis, using the Hungarian keyboard layout
