Okay, here's a little email lesson.  Eoghan's mail software encodes his
messages into MIME format.  For some of us that's not a problem and we
receive the message and it looks just fine(PINE which I'm using,
automatically decodes MIME for me), some of us(ie Jonathan Blackbow)
receives the message with weird characters stuck in it.  This is because
their mail readers don't do MIME.
