No. Instead, I'm sure this will only work for iso8859-1. However,
that would fit my archive. I'm unsure about a *real* solution
to the problem (and I really don't know anything about python
and how to code a real solution), but I've searched the code to
find the (correctly escaped) "<" and ">" signs. I found them,
added my stuff and failed. Does the message (at this point)
contain the "=XX" escapes at all? How can I look behind the
scene? I'd really love to contribute, but I fear I'll need some
hints before...
