mime.charsets - list of character sets which are ASCII supersets
The mime.charsets file lists MIME character sets which are a superset
of us-ascii, ie that characters 0 to 255 are the same as in us-ascii.
This is true of the iso-8859-* character sets which are standardised
for use in internet mail.
Af uses this information to determine whether to display the text of a
message in a given charset, or to treat it as an unknown type.
Lines in the file which start with a ’#’ are treated as comments and
ignored, as are blank lines. Each other line lists a character set
which is an ASCII superset.
