I changed the character-encoding to iso-8859-2, it's working, but if I did a /whois on everybody, i see raw unciode characters, when my partner has got color code in his name.

Example: daykiller is daykiller@*.hu * ·#·$7| ·$2kömike ·$7× ·$27d4y·$4K1ll3R ·$7| (L) hianyzol :( | jövő hétvégén nem érek rá, még akkor sem ha élet-halál kérdése!!!! daykiller using saxunoid@*.hu. MSN network daykiller End of /WHOIS list.

daykiller is using MSN Messenger 7.5. I'm use the offical bitblee gateway.

Just tell your partner he/she should change the friendly name to something normal like: "daykiller"

Hehe, agreed. But yes, the way BitlBee does charset conversion isn't really right yet. But damn, why do they put IRC-style colour codes there? Doesn't that mess up completely with the original MSN client too?

Or do MSN+ people not care about compatibility with the grown-up half of the world at all? They're usually adolescents, so that's also possible. ;-)

[156] and later should handle charset conversion a *lot* better. The ICQ problems aren't fixed yet, but apart from that, this problem should be gone forever.
