I'm the OP.  I'm using MT-Newswatcher 3.5.1.  I thought I had it 
configured properly, but I guess I didn't.  Under 
Preferences->Languages->Send Messages with Encoding I had selected 
latin-1.  I didn't know I also needed to have MIME turned on for that to 
work.  I've turned it on now.  Is this better?

This should be a micro sign: µ
