Hi all,

I am new to this list and trying to use Mailman
to administer a Japanese language ML.

I have recently installed Mailman. Mailman
no trouble with handling Japanese e-mail messages but
archive files (html) do not display Japanese
characters properly. The problem seems to do
with the html conversion by Mailman.

When Mailman encouters '>' it gets replaced with '>'. In the
case of Japanese (multibyte) messages, this '>' is generally
one byte of double-byte character (Japanese) and as a result
the characters get messed up in html files. Archive files in the
text format does not have this problem.

I am not sure how this problem can be sorted out.
Is there a way wherein the replacement of '>' by '>'
can be avoided. Or is there a way to generate text files
instead of html files.

Thanks in advance.
