Just committed to cvs:
- use the message font for the source viewer;
- add a View menu with the option to turn off escaping of the text.
The default is to escape: special characters are escaped as \t, \r,
etc. (\n and \" are the only special characters not escaped), and non-
ASCII characters are octal-coded (\192, etc.).
With escaping disabled, invalid UTF-8 text sent by a broken MUA is a
problem, so any non-UTF-8 characters are replaced by `?' (to avoid
whining from Gtk stuff). If you see these, turn escaping back on to see
the octal codes for what was actually sent.
