Blog: When é becomes i

Catherine Sleep | 19 August 2004

It’s been brought to my attention that in some of our newsletters we appear to be misspelling Nestlé as Nestli. While we’re not above making the odd error, this one is out of our hands. It also affects other words with accented characters in them.

If you are seeing this in your newsletters, it is related to the email application you use rather than the newsletter content. Thus, when the newsletter leaves my hands, the spelling is 100% correct – not an 'i' in sight.

As we send text emails only, we are held ransom by the vagaries of different mail clients. Their interpretation of standard ASCII codes is far beyond our control. But it does grate, doesn't it?
