Just a note--I have a Windows copy of PGP 5 and intend to try resetting
passphrases next time I reboot, and also to learn a bit more about
UTF-8 and the current situation, but due to a suddenly hectic schedule
I'll delay it for at least a week.  Besides, I hate rebooting.  :-)

I'll be sure to report back the results.
