  Outsmarting a broken Web interface

This post is a test.  It is only a test.

I just changed my Thunderbird character encoding to UTF-8, in the hope 
that the Web interface won't overcorrect ISO-8859-1 text and print 
things like "Bézier" when it sees "Bézier," and formulas like

   P(t) = (1-t)³*P1 + 3*(1-t)²*t*P2 + 3*(1-t)*t²*P3 + t³*P4

will show correctly, instead of my having to fire up Thunderbird just to 
read a message.  Although I prefer a newsreader for posting, the Web 
interface is most convenient for reading though the messages.  And maybe 
we'll see less "Â Â Â" in replies where there should be just whitespace.
