It does. When speaking about CR or LF is does mean the codes 0x0d and 0x0a. Codes > 0x7f are not used in OpenPGP. How you encode the message is not subject to OpenPGP and for user IDs and other strings used within OpenPGP packets UTF-8 encoding is required. So if you want to use these characters, there must be a reason for this and you probably should not convert them. Due to RFC822 restrictions you have to encode those characters anyway. Do not use ascii armor but RFC2015 for such messages. -- Werner Koch at keyid 621CC013 Boycott Amazon! -
