MT-NW fonts - Mac Networking

I've noticed that when an article has "cht=utf-8" in its Content-Type header, MT-NW uses a smaller font than normal. I went through all the text font settings in the Preferences and changed them to 10 points, but it didn't help. I'm using MT-NW 3.4b4 in Panther, but this behavior has been there since my OS 9 days. Is there a fix? -- Barry Margolin, mit.edu Arlington, MA *** PLEASE post questions in newsgroups, not directly to me ***...

    Default MT-NW fonts

    I've noticed that when an article has "cht=utf-8" in its
    Content-Type header, MT-NW uses a smaller font than normal. I went
    through all the text font settings in the Preferences and changed them
    to 10 points, but it didn't help.

    I'm using MT-NW 3.4b4 in Panther, but this behavior has been there since
    my OS 9 days. Is there a fix?

    hrm. Do you have Internet Explorer installed? You might try changing the
    fonts there for each character set. I have no real idea if this would
    work, it's just a crazy suggestion.

    Where did you get 3.4b4? I don't see it on the MT-NW homepage.

    What I do when I read such a message is change the encoding to ISO Latin

    I reported a problem, and Simon sent me a link to the version that fixes
    it.

    But the problem isn't version-dependent, as I said. It's been annoying
    me for years, and I just got around to asking about it.

    I think it's installed by default in Panther, but I've never used it on
    this machine.

    As I recall, it's an optional install.

    I'm not going to spend time installing and running IE just to fix a
    minor annoyance in MT-NW....

    I also consider it a problem.

    (I know me toos are normally frowned upon, but this is a request for a
    feature.
