I'd say please don't use high ascii without CHRS kludge.
There's a lot of software that doesn't recognize the CHRS kludge
There is also plenty of software that DOES recognise it. Has been for decades.
so my advice is to avoid it period unless the echo specifically allows
Your advice is ignored. A seven bit characterset like ASCII is too lean to have
everyone in Fidonet properly express themselves. In most western European languages the accents and umlauts are indispensible for properly writing non trivial messages. Plus that the vast majority of messages are written in Cyrillic these days.
I personally just find it annoying except in BBS ads and the like.
You are too easily annoyed.
Sorry Sean, the days that the ASCII only cult could impose their will on the rest of Fidonet are long gone. They are now a tiny majority. Live with it.
