Mail & Unicode

I really hope that future versions of Thunderbird, etc. will have Unicode UTF-8 as the default for mail. Although there may be some legacy mail programs that do not support it, these need to get with the program... This won't affect English speakers really, so it might be easier for me to say, but I think one should just be able to send an email in any language or combinations of languages by default, as Unicode offers... I've changed my default Thunderbird option, but I don't think that alone will have much of an impact, even if a good number of other people do so too... Thoughts?

  • Hello, I'm OT but I can't find a your contact.

    I'm going to develop a Firefox extension which should call some java stuff contained in .jar files. I've found your blog through XqUSEme extension, which does the thing I want but...
    ...always I get the same error:
    java.security.PrivilegedActionException:java.security.PrivilegedActionException:java.lang.reflect.InvocationTargetException

    I've searched over all the web but I can't find anything useful about the security policy.
    Can you help me? If you let me contact you I can send you my code.

    Regards,
    Giancarlo
