It looks like each file that calls a txt file would have to be changed, or 
is there somewhere that I can globally change the

Content-Type: text/plain; charset="us-ascii" 

to iso-8859-1?  I know I would then have to change all text files that are 
emailed (after figuring out which ones are emailed and which ones are 
simply includes.)

I tried changing the selection in Defaults.py  for English to iso-8859-1, 
but that did not do it.
