Dear Howard

My reply to your last message was marked as 'spam' by my mail tool when I received the copy, so I'm sending it again in case your mail tool also 'spams it'

Previous reply:

1) So if a compliant CIF2 processing system can reject any non-UTF-8 CIF,
all non-UTF-8 CIFs are non-compliant?

2) So why not just state that only Unicode encodings are acceptable?



PS I totally accept the point you're making about how we are often oblivious to the underlying encoding used by our software,
but it also demonstrates what can happen if you do not know  what the encoding is :-)
