Not necessarily. I also use pine, Martin's signature showed up
fine here too, but I keep getting that sort of code all the time:
for example, when I receive a message that has been processed by a
non-extended-chars-savvy list digest software (like Majordomo,
for instance, if I recall correctly). So much so that it is
considered a netiquette breach, here in my country, to use
accented characters in list postings, *even though* our language
(Portuguese) needs them in practically every word.
