    looks good here from the console terminal with the new unicode work that's been
    done in sbbs :)

    Нет, это не так. It looks good since the 0x8d cp437 character survived. How about the 0x8d cp866 character in this reply?

    AFAICT, they're ok... this is also from the console terminal... what i see above is how they looked before i entered this editor...

    FWIW: the path your message took was
    X-FTN-PATH 153/7001 757 770/1 280/464 154/10

    i'll have to take a look at your post from my golded setup on my point... i'm sure the characters won't show up properly there because of its CP437 heritage and that i'm running golded in a CP437 conversion wrapper...

    i see the same here as i did on the console... not sure why other than maybe the CP866 thing... there's still work being done on sbbs' unicode implementation so it may be that it doesn't know how to translate those... i dunno... i don' think it is related to my font on this system, though... i spent the other day all down in the font rabbit hole and finally found the unifont stuff which i promptly installed...

    for G&G here's your path again... i don't currently have anything in place to archive pkts before they're tossed... if i did, i could compare the message in different pkts when it arrives and is detected as a dupe...

    And to this end they built themselves a stupendous super-computer which was
    so amazingly intelligent that even before its data banks had been connected
    up it had started from "I think therefore I am" and got as far as deducing
    the existence of rice pudding and income tax before anyone managed to turn
    it off.

    Hallo mark!

    there's still work being done on sbbs' unicode implementation so
    it may be that it doesn't know how to translate those

    Last I heard about it the default is to assume cp437 -> utf8 which when "CHRS: CP866 2" would be wrong. Bottomline is that all the 8-bit characters retained their values and didn't get deleted.

    Het leven is goed,
    Maurice

    yeah, i dunno... i don't know how sbbs is doing it...

    Bottomline is that all the 8-bit characters retained their values
    and didn't get deleted.

    the tests i saw the other day were good other than bad wordwrapping... i would have thought i'd have seen the proper glyphs for these two but i don't know what the differences between the message is...
