NAME

       mime.charsets - list of character sets which are ASCII supersets

DESCRIPTION

       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.

EXAMPLE

           # A sample mime.charsets file.

           us-ascii
           iso-8859-1
           iso-8859-2
