I have to disagree with the 7 bit ASCII part.  That used to be a good
rule, and an important one, back in the days when MSDOS and code page
437 were widely (ab)used.  But times have changed, and latin1 and the
like are much more widely accepted now.  if your name is François, you
should be able to put that in your .sig instead of Francois.
