You're using hotmail. In hotmail, your browser will be set to a
non-Unicode encoding. Pasting in non-ASCII characters will generally
turn them into HTML entities (the browser does this, not hotmail
itself). A few characters may not have this happen, if they happen to be
in the local encoding (typically windows-1252 in your case).
If you use Yahoo! Mail Beta or GMail, this won't happen, since these use
UTF-8 for their interfaces.

Internationalization is an architecture.
It is not a feature.
