I get that too, including on your message, and most of the ones I send
to the list. Also often "=3D" for equals signs. I think it must be some
combination of the sender's email client, the way the message is
processed, and/or the receiver's email. I've only ever seen it happen on
this list, but then, this is the only list I'm currently on. I'm on
Outlook 2003, you?

Also, I get the digest version. Don't know if that matters; I just
mention it in case it might.
