As far as I know GPG has some awareness of charsets other that US-ASCII. :-)
I'm by default using ISO-8859-2 (for Polish text) and here are three
1) should I explicite specify any charset in GPG configuration ? Which one ?
2) some of the ISO charsets are overlapping (like there are German umlauts
both in ISO 8859/1 and ISO 8859/2). Should there be any conversion tables ?
3) by browsing the source I found that sometimes Unicode support kicks in.
Shouldn't GPG operate on some Unicode encoding (like UTF-8) internally ? How
is resolved such a situation when I'm signing/encrypting ISO 8859/2 text and
the receiver expects it to be ISO 8859/1 ?
