Re: [hylafax-users] ISO-8859-15 and faxmail
I am sending mails to faxmail using ISO-8859-15 and see that all the special/international characters are getting replaced by blanks in the fax output. ISO-8859-1 works fine though.
Actually, ISO-8859-1 does not work entirely, just ASCII.
faxmail currently has no ability to use a character encoding other than
the "standard" one used by Postscript - which is ASCII. So it's going
to take someone with some Postscript know-how to extend faxmail to, at
least, support a single, specified character encoding throughout the
entire Postscript output.
Does anybody know the status of ISO-8859-15 support ?
To the best of my knowledge nobody is working on it.
Additionally I am seeing that mails in ISO-8859-1 which contain .pdf attachments are also losing the international characters from the subject .. anybody else seeing this problem ? Simple mails without attachments in ISO-8859-1 work fine.
It's essentially the same problem as was mentioned above.
