I did not change the character handling in the transport. What the
transport does is map UTF-8 to (in your case) CP1252 (Windows character
set). You can change the character mapping to something more
appropriate, but if the majority of the actual Yahoo! clients are on
Windows machine, then CP1252 is correct.

You can change the mapping to any character set that the iconv()
function call will handle on your platform. See the manual page for
iconv to see what chatacter sets are available.
