I think the answer lies in what my mailer tells me about your message.
Your mailer is a MIME (Multipurpose Internet Mail Exentions) mailer
and has decided that the character set you should use be the
international one instead of the US one.  Since my display is set
for US characters my mailer gives me this message at the top of
your mail:

    [The following text is in the "iso-8859-1" character set]
    [Your display is set for the "US-ASCII" character set]
    [Some characters may be displayed incorrectly]

You might check your mailer and see if you can change this being as
most of us on the list are in the US, and the Canadians seem to use
the same characters that we do. :-)
