UTF-8 and how mutt just made me angry
A while ago I unsuccessfully tried to switch my environment to a UTF-8 locale. The problem was that mutt’s output would be screwed; all I saw on my terminal was “no such character” boxes. As I just accidentally discovered, the problem is simply that mutt expects the
charset to be called
utf-8. Sometimes I could bite my keyboard.
Now I can finally make another attempt at going UTF-8 wholesale and leaving the non-Unicode nonsense of ages past behind me.
