Actually, you can get quite far with display without MULE. IIRC,
historically that's why Gnus does things this way. Consider that X11
doesn't know any differences among ISO Latin-1, ISO Latin-9 (hardly
surprising to humans), and ISO Arabic (astonishing to most humans).
Just change the registry of the font for the default face from
iso8859-1 to iso8859-15 to iso8859-6 as you have need for the ancient
currency symbol (aka the "horny bullet"), the Euro, or the language of
It's multilingual input and handling files in different character sets
*simultaneously* where MULE (or something like it) becomes essential.
