We are running Mailman at sindominio.net (Barry: you can add us to http://www.list.org/inthenews.html in you want to).
We have an archiving problem, that python.org seems to have as well.
If you go to http://mail.python.org/pipermail/mailman-i18n/2001-June/date.html you will see the June messages index, including this one:
[Mailman-i18n] German translation available? =?iso-8859-1?Q?Wilfried_G=F6dert?=
You see, it says "=?iso-8859-1?Q?Wilfried_G=F6dert?=" instead of "Wilfried Gödert".
I think this would be solved modifying Defaults.py so that the iso-latin-1 characters are converted to html entities: DEFAULT_CHARSET = ['iso-8859-1'] VERBATIM_ENCODING = ['iso-8859-1'] (Please confirm this is the correct syntax, as we have to implement it).
But what about if a site is running 2 lists, one in Spanish and other one in Japanese?
