I find that sometimes I see a wierd character - Â - in email text instead of
double space.  Surely, If I am using HTML as my email message format, then it
would be better if the editor recorded all consecutive space characters, bar the
ultimate space character, as  

Reproducible: Sometimes
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Create an email message with consecutive space characters.
2.It seems to happen more frequently if you have changed the text formatting and
text styles often as you have composed the email message.
3.Send the email to yourself and others
4.Notice that in the received email the consecutive spaces are rendered as Â
characters.  That is ÂÂÂÂÂÂ

I could not reproduce your problem, but I often have similar problems (also
difficult to reproduce)

What character set is being used?  It sounds like the non-breaking space
character is being converted incorrectly.

Evan Toliopoulos, is this bug still an issue for you?  I am unable to get a mail 
with nbsp's enclosed to display as described, picking any encoding.  If I save 
the mail as a .eml file, I can see the strange character in dumb viewer programs 
that don't understand encoding, but Mozilla (1.3, 1.4) seems to be doing the 
right thing no matter how I try to view it.
