Aha, yes, sorry Maulik, I can now reproduce this (but only if I have
IE5.5's encoding on auto-select, and I normally don't because it's so
buggy) There's probably some chance string in Dave's html that
confuses IE5's encoding-detection heuristics (which it seems to
believe despite the explicit encoding settings).

Also, there's something very odd about 8859-7 support in Win2K at
least. If you have it installed, OE emails in any flavour of ISO-8859
tend to get marked as 8859-7 encoded, even if 8859-7 isn't active. I
had to uninstall Greek support for that reason.
