I'm on a Mac, and actually haven't gotten all of
the accents on Wilson's emails correctly, so let
me test with this bit from a text test pattern
(one of a few at );

"Spé ál Ríst Sópl?" Lrú setsp lèr àstìçp, òlr
Ùstes Pêlrâst sîôpl rûs tespëlräïst spö lür's
tÿsp. Lr¦ såt ßip l¦ur es tespla, ristøus
eplrestãsp. Liñ stõ

That starts out with acute vowels until after
setsp, then grave (with a c-cedilla in àstìçp),
then circumflexes starting in Pêlrâst and umlauts
from the second e in tespëlräïst, with an
assortment thereafter -- you can check them
against the web page (it's the second set).

Does it come through?
