Michael -

There exist MacRoman<->CP1252 translate tables for MacEudora that will use
the CP1252 codepoint mappings in lieu of the MacRoman<->MacISO ones IF the
incoming message is marked CP1252/Windows-1252 instead of ISO-8859-1 (and
will translate and mark as CP1252/Windows-1252 for outgoing messages). When
I get home tonight I will send you such a message.
