    Problem when quoting an UTF-8 message that contains apostrophes

    Hello,

    I noticed a problem when I receive an UTF-8 encoded message that contains apostrophes, sent by Microsoft Windows Live Mail.
    For instance, I receive a message that contains the word:

    J'ai

    In raw view, it's encoded as:

     Content-Type: text/plain;
        charset="utf-8"
    Content-Transfer-Encoding: quoted-printable

    J=E2=80=99ai

    PM displays it properly.
    But when I answer the message, and quote the original text, I get:

     > J™ai

    whetever the charset I select for my messages.
    PM seems to convert it to > J=E2=84=A2ai instead of keeping > J=E2=80=99ai

    Does anyone know where it can come from, and how to prevent this?

    Thank you,

    Olivier

    I can't duplicate this with plain text, are you sure you're not quoting the HTML part that it most certainly contains? Can you please forward this message to beta-reports[at]pmail.gen.nz: Copy it to your new mail folder, then open Help => About Pegasus Mail => Info to check for the New mailbox location, right-click the message in Pegasus Mail's new mail folder and select Message properties which will display the filename (with a CNM extension) at its top, open the respective location in a Windows explorer window and then attach the located CNM file to a message to the above address, preferably zipped.

    You should have mentioned before that this only happens when replying to a selected portion of text: Now I can duplicate it, but only in this case ...

    You're right, sorry, I didn't realize that. I always select a part of the message before replying, in order to remove extra signatures. 

    Sorry again,
