When i receive mail, i have often a problem with the ' character.

For example, i have l?odeur and not l'odeur.

But what is strange is that it's not all the time (see example below)

The sending email client put an incorrect or missing charset in the email headers.

Try changing the charset using the right click menu on the text area. iso-8859-1 or -2 is a good place to start.

yes its the problem with senders client. I could not change character set coz there is only view source, copy source and view in default browser options available. when I viewed in default browser then there is no problem with ' character.

Test23 actually had a fix for a charset issue in HTML... have you tried that?

You could also copy the HTML into an email and send it to me. They may be outstanding issues I need to fix with the HTML control

just now I updated iScribe test 23 and had the same problem. But actually I have not used HTML plugin so far as it is not safer. To test this ' character problem I added ieHTML plugin and saw there are no problem with the character. Also the encoding should be only user defined with auto select option not selected. If auto select option enabled then again comes the ' character problem. Do I need to send you any mail now?. Tell little more clear. I could not get you.
