Subject: 'macintosh' not recognize as MacRoman
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 423b
According to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MacRoman the IANA designation for MacRoman is 'macintosh' Some versions of Apple's Mail program send mail with charset=MACINTOSH in the content-type. Encode does not recognize that as meaning MacRoman. This led, recently to some really obnoxious failures in some mail processing code. I will hack around it in the meantime, but it would be good for this to Just Work. -- rjbs
