	It's for the same reason people get a mangled signature from me
care of the majordomo mailer:  it's extended (8-bit) ASCII/ANSI converted
to 7-bit ASCII.  You'll see it also when foreign characters are
translated down to 7-bit.

	The only real solution seems to be standardizing the Net on 8-bit
-- or preferably Unicode (as if)...
