The list seems to have done something unfortunate to the message after
it left me. I sent it
Content-Type: text/plain; charset="iso-8859-1"
and the "x"s in those "Tromsx"s were 8859-1 o-slash characters (0xf8).
But by the time it got back, it had been downgraded to
Content-Type: text/plain; charset="us-ascii"
and the high bit dropped from each o-slash (a somewhat broken way of
mapping 8859-1 onto ASCII, it seems to me...).
Just to reassure the Scandanavians here, I do know how to spell that
