Description

13 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; fr-FR; rv:1.7.7) Gecko/20050414 Firefox/1.0.3
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; fr-FR; rv:1.7.7) Gecko/20050414 Firefox/1.0.3

I received an e-mail containing the charset type :
Content-Type: text/plain; charset="iso-8859-15"

and this mail contains the special char "=92" which apparently isn't recognized
correctly... Instead of an "'" (apostrophe) the char "�" was displayed...

But if I force the char code of this message to be "iso-8859-1" the char "=92"
is displayed as an apostrophe as espected.

Was the charset "iso-8859-15" used incorrectly in this mail or is this a miss of
special chars in the charset "iso-8859-15" implemented in Mozilla Thunderbird ?

Reproducible: Always

In attachement, the mail I received containing the problem...
This is an automated message, with ID "auto-resolve01".

This bug has had no comments for a long time. Statistically, we have found that
bug reports that have not been confirmed by a second user after three months are
highly unlikely to be the source of a fix to the code.

While your input is very important to us, our resources are limited and so we
are asking for your help in focussing our efforts. If you can still reproduce
this problem in the latest version of the product (see below for how to obtain a
copy) or, for feature requests, if it's not present in the latest version and
you still believe we should implement it, please visit the URL of this bug
(given at the top of this mail) and add a comment to that effect, giving more
reproduction information if you have it.

If it is not a problem any longer, you need take no action. If this bug is not
changed in any way in the next two weeks, it will be automatically resolved.
