Bug Description

I just bought a few albums via the U1 music store and paid in Euro. The confirmation mail did not correctly show the Euro symbol in the plain text representation. (The HTML variant of the text looks fine.) This is the relevant part of the message body:

Content-Type: text/plain; charset=iso-8859-1
Content-Transfer-Encoding: quoted-printable

ISO-8859-1 does not contain the Euro symbol, so we have the usual mapping 9,99€ -> 9,99? The total amount is slightly better displayed: "39,46€" but that is also not strictly correct ;)
