I'm wondering to what extent mIRC is performing charset detection on incoming messages.

- mIRC 6.x user sends "" (German umlauts) in ISO-8859-1 or ISO-8859-15: mIRC 7 displays them just fine.
- French user has trouble getting to display correctly.

This means that mIRC 7 must be performing some kind of charset detection, although in a limited fashion. Can anybody (Khaled?) enlighten me about the specifics? Thanks!
