This means the subject line is encoded with ISO-8859-1, aka Latin-1.
This encoding works great for English, French, German, Spanish, and the
other major Western European languages.  If you can use to encode
Chinese, I'll eat my shorts.  ;->

Looks like a misconfigured email client to me.  Not much Mailman can do
about that.
