I noticed that the Json table (array) open and close characters are not
printable ("[","]") and their hex values are z'Ad' and x'BD'. somehow,
(Hebrew) keyboards do not print these characters. What is your hex value
for these characters?

Ugh! They're code page sensitive.
I hate EBCDIC!

The PC code pages are equally Heterogeneous, perhaps more.

Yet again. My attachments are supposed to be utf-8. They display OK
with Mail.app, but not on the LISTSERV web site.

The code points for [ and ] depend on the code page. My advice would be to use UTF-8 whenever possible.

Also, check all of the translate tables involved, e.g., TSO/VTAM, TIOC, ISPF, FTP.

OK. I'll hate those, too.

"Heterogeneous"? Don't we celebrate diversity.

Third time's the charm. Making both the mail body and all attachments
"charset=utf-8" got a clean display on the web site. Homogeneous.

Mutt is a glorious PITA!

In cusine, il va sans dire. In character sets, not so much. With the advent of Unicode and UTF-8, I wish those other code pages would go away. Or at least that every OS tagged character files with the code page and did the translations.

Right. Was it ITschak or Gadi who was afflicted with a polyglot code page (SBCS?)
Latin/Hebrew/Arabic?

Right. And the terminal emulator. And the horse they rode in on.
