    Hey Uncle!

    Whatever happens to -> , , , <- impacts fts-5003.001 wrt utf-8 characters,
    as well as 0x8d for the acceptable 8-bit character encodings of which only the
    iso-8859-x encodings escape this particular long standing bug of much abandonware still in use within this fine hobby.

    Life is good,

    Hey Maurice!

    I won't bother quoting back the corrupted characters, nevermind the additional linefeeds someone's tosser decided the original required. Ignoring the lame DOS-think word wrapping, it can be easily demonstrated that the 0x8d trailing bytes of the legitimate utf-8 encoded characters all got deleted from the original which *should* be sufficient evidence to suggest that there is a very serious problem.

    What exactly is the job of the FTSC?

    Life is good,
    Maurice
