Don't use ASCII as it's going to try and convert it in hotmail.
That's not an answer, but I often wonder why it's so important for others to use ASCII in sigs to make this an issue the last 4 years. I'm curious...what's in this signature that's going to make or break a formal conversation via e-mail that you can't just leave out and say "Thank you, John Doe". Format over Formality?
Thanks for making time to share with me your thoughts on this matter.
I tend to agree with you: a special ASCII character it is not substantial, it is neither relevant to any subject we are trying to expose nor important to reinforce any argument of any kind.
But on the other hand, my friend, it happens that English is my second language, being the first one Spanish, and in this language we use a lot of ASCII characters which are always part of the correct Grammar and usually gives a different sense to a word or to a phrase; sometimes the same sentence can be interpreted in two or three different ways depending on the ASCII characters we use.
For instance we use a and á, e and é, i and í, o and ó, u and ú and ü
, also n and ñ, etc.; those ASCII characters make a difference, sometimes subtle difference, sometimes a considerable one.
My friend Chumly: thanks again, it is always a pleasure having friends interested in the questions we post here. How do you think I can get that Windos Live Mail recognizes my signature with special ASCII characters ?
Best greetings from New York,
