    Log Message:
    Correct comment about return value of function

    Why does a function this small need a comment describing its return value in the first place? <sigh>

    Log Message:
    Convert LATIN-1 to ISO-8859-1 charset on export to NNTP

    From: Carlos Navarro (2:341/234.1)

    Messages that use CHRS: LATIN-1 are not displayed properly in newsreaders (Synchronet's NNTP server renders them with the default charset=IBM437).

    This fix may work: edit exec/load/newsutil.js, at line 77 insert

    case "LATIN-1 2":
    charset = "ISO-8859-1";
    break;

    If you want to test: (accented aeiou, n with tilde)
