Why's this look like gibberish to me? (was: Grub2)
Sorry for the thread snatch.
I'm (usually*) reading d-u in slrn via the mail to news gateway
linux.debian.user. I've seen this before and I'm wondering if there's
anything I can do about it, other than going utf-8 myself (I've no
need for it (I think)).

Nothing in this mail is readable here, other than its headers and
those Content-* lines.
Is this just another reason for me to ignore posts from gmail, or is
there anything I can do about it? I'm installing metamail now, but
that's just a shot in the dark.
Etch, slrn 0.9.8.1pl1. .slrnrc:
set charset isolatin
(0) phreaque /home/keeling_ locale
I have generated utf-8 locales on this thing, but I don't use them (I
can't read/write/understand anything but English). slrn does well
with many foreign chars, but every once in a while it hits complete a
brick wall on some posts, and I haven't been able to nail it down yet.
* the gateway's currently reporting it's down for maintenance.
Any technology distinguishable from magic is insufficiently advanced.
