They presumably don't come through properly in my message because
they had already been mangled on arrival at my email client.  My
version of Eudora is 7.1 something; perhaps it's too new!  (I've had
the same problem with messages from Randy -- unless he puts the
syllables into Latin script, I don't see anything understandable.)

Larry, have you installed some add-on to Eudora?
