oh, i'd say this is very important.  for example, i get GPG encoded
messages where the same funny characters are displayed the OP talked
about (one funny character plus the normal character one expects to
see).  this may well be a defficiency in GPG (mailcrypt in my case):
i get the cryptogram from an emacs in one characterset, which gets
lost in transmission, and gets decoded 1:1 from the perspective of the
sender.  which turns out to be wrong on my receiving side.

but actually, i didn't understand a thing what you and hilarious ilya
talked about.  what's a glyph other than what a character looks like,
anyway?  isn't it a picture of a character?
