Dear GAP Forum,

I guess that your email client gets this very wrong, because '|' is an ASCII
character (hex value 7C).
You're probably composing your messages in HTML, and then
something weird is happening when a plain text version of your message
is made.

What he sent was the Unicode character hex 2502 ("box drawings light
vertical"), encoded in utf-8, quoted-printable, which many MTAs
today probably cannot decode easily (while the ASCII `|' surely
works for everyone).
