If you send a document <p>The original quote was AU$20,000. Please send me E15,000</p> where the E was the Euro character, I do not think you would be happy if the delivering system merely stripped out the Euro character (e.g. if the document was written using x80 as the Euro character but mislabelled ISO 8859-1 or ISO 8859-15.) It would change the meaning of the document so that you are asking for less rather than more. This is something that checksums and signatures will not remedy. Cheers Rick Jelliffe
