    "Incoming messages without "CHRS" control lines should be considered

    Those characters are IBM codepage 437 when they are hitting my system, which means that the characters are in compliance. But it does look like you're getting a UTF8 version of them somehow.

    I do not know where you got that, but FTS-5003 says something different:

    === quote FTS-5003 ===

    Incoming messages without "CHRS" control lines should be considered
    as being written in pure ASCII, but may be treated as being written
    in some default character set or character encoding scheme. Such as
    IBM codepage 437, IBM codepage 866 or UTF-8. It is recommended that
    message readers offer the user the option of manually selecting a
    different character set or encoding scheme for these messages on a
    per-area, per-message or other basis.

    === end quote FTS-5003 ===

    Those characters are IBM codepage 437 when they are hitting my system, which means that the characters are in compliance.

    In complience with what? AFAIK, there is no default character encoding defined for this area.

    But it does look like you're getting a UTF8 version of them somehow.

    My reader is configured to use UTF-8 as the default.

    Except for the "down-arrow"+"C4" on the line below "Sorry..", it looks
    fine in OpenXP!

    But alas, there does not seem to be either charset or chrs kludge.

    frl-1020 is not a standard. It is an archive of a proposal. That part of the proposal did not make it into the standard as it did no loger reflect common practice or wide spread use at the time.

    Which makes sense, considering there has to be a default way to handle cases where something doesn't use an optional kludge line.

    It made sense 30 years ago when Fidonet was mostly concentrated in Z1 and CP437
    was more or less the only game in town. Today it makes much less sense. In Western Europe it is mostly CP850 or Latin 1. The majority of messages written in Fdionet these days however are in Cyrrilic. CP866 or KOI8-R.

    Also.. For the vast majority of echomail areas there is no defined default encoding. Such a default would have to be defined by the moderator. But if there is no moderator or the moderator has not defined a default, the only thing that makes sense is to use ASCII only if there is no CHRS: kludge line.

    You can also make a separate signature for network posts on C-Net. I allow signatures, but turned of MCI in all echos that are not Fully C-Net echos. So RetroNet's C-Net Support Echo and ArakNet C-Net Support echo allow MCI. I did make a request to have the C-Net Support echo added back to FidoNet
    also.

    Nope. Still no CHRS: kludge and stiil garbage. Not just in the range >128 but there is also al "low" control character in the signature, hex 19 or DC3. That should not be there at all. Here is a hex dump showing it:
