[REBOL] Re: [ml] Where are all these =20 end of line characters coming from?

From: martin76:kth:se at: 17-Aug-2004 4:22

It is more complicated than that unfortunately. This is from the headers: Content-type: text/plan; charset=iso-8859-15 Content-Transfer-Encoding: 8bit It's the Content-Transfer-Encoding that is the interesting part here. It could be 8bit, base64, quoted printable, etc. It's the actual transport encoding, which is not directly tied to the character set encoding. Or something like that. If your mail said Content-Transfer-Encoding: quoted-printable instead, it would work. So, I'm guessing that when you sent the email it did say quoted-printable and at some point, it was changed to 8bit, possible by the mail list server. From Wikipedia about quoted printable: Printable ASCII characters except "=", i.e. those with decimal values between 33 and 126 excepting decimal value 61, may be represented by themselves. ASCII tab and space characters, decimal values 9 and 32, may be represented by themselves except if these characters appear at the end of a line. If one of these characters appears at the end of a line it must be encoded as "=09" (tab) or "=20" (space). End of pasted text. /Martin Ashley Trüter wrote:
