unix charset = iso8859-1I sure wish I could just use UTF-8. But it's remarkably difficult to make a Linux environment happy with UTF-8, so I'm stuck with Latin-1. I don't really know why cp850 (a bastardized Latin-1) is the right thing on the Windows end, is that the default for US WinXP systems?
display charset = iso8859-1
dos charset = cp850
