    Default What's the difference between utf-8 (locale) and utf-8 in KMail

    Hi,

    I am confused by the encoding of mail. In KMail, there is a list of in Settings > Configure KMail > Composer > Charset used to encode the message. My list looks like,
    Code:
    utf-8 (locale)
    utf-8
    us-ascii
    iso-8859-1
    ** I'm not sure whether this is the default list or I've changed it some time before.

    When I reply or forward SOME of the mails having Simplified Chinese characters inside, SOME of the characters are not displayed well. When I changed the order of the first 2 charset in the list, the problem is gone. Or, maybe it's gone because I deselected the option of "Keep original charset when replying or forwarding (if possible)".

    But I am only interested in the charsets. Could anyone please point out the difference between utf-8 (locale) and utf-8?

    Regards,
    CnZhx
