Actually I meant what I wrote. If I get a mail it should be stored as-is
in the database - that's what I mean with "internally", and that is what
Celeste already does quite well :-)
The conversion should IMHO only happen in the UI. Currently, it uses
isoToSqueak and the Squeak default font for displaying, but it would well
be possible to use a specially encoded font for this. Also, this way it
would be possible to display kyrillic or greek or whatever charsets.
