Actually that analogy doesn't hold fully.  The PGP signature that were
used by Anne-Marie doesn't conform to the IETF-standardized
PGP-in-mail format, i.e. RFC 2015/3156.

If RFC 3156 were used, the signature should have worked fine, even for
non-ASCII characters such as 'ö'.

This does not mean that DNSSEC as standardized by the IETF will work,
though... ;-)


Btw, the second signature were good here too.  It was ASCII only.
Let's see if this non-ASCII properly signed e-mail goes through..
