Separated from bug 131983. http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=131983#c30 > It is possible to skip "RE:" without encoding the string again. It needs to > decode MIME encode but without charset conversion then we can search for "RE:", > remember the positions and copy the rest of the string over. This way, the > result is always shorter than the original and no modification to the subject > except for removing "RE:". Probably, we want that functionality in the MIME > decoder/encoder interface. I think this would be not a small change, so not for > moz1.0. http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=131983#c32 > NS_MsgStripRE() must return "Hello, world." for the all of following input (it's > in raw ISO-2022-JP for viewing purpose): > > Re: Hello, world. > \x1b(BRe: Hello, world. > \x1b(JRe: Hello, world. > > Although I don't know actual implementation works this way, they are all > comformance to RFC 1468.
