        Before I run the risk of making a fool of myself and open a bug report 
that should not be opened, I need to know if someone of you can and is 
willing to give me an idea on how are ISO-8859 character sets handled in 
gopher menus.
I think their correct display is left to the client, the server and the 
protocol do not take in account any particular character set, right?
I'm wondering this because I noticed that Seamonkey 1.0 
( does not display in the menu 
any line that contains accented vowels (I believe it does not display 
any line that contains 8-bit characters).  However, both Mosaic 2.7b6 
and netscape 4.78 do.  This affects the menu only, text files with 
ISO-8859-1 characters are displayed correctly.

   Thank you, happy post-april 1st recovery to all.
