great work Thomas...
Keep it up.
About the character set issues:
The file conf/interface.txt allows you to specify the character Set
against the 0: entry. This entry will be sent as the header to the user...
So, I guess, you would have to place any necessary encodings directly in
the file..

>    7-bit ascii, 8-bit longs replaced by html entities, e.g. 'a diaresis' = '&auml;'
>    8-bit ascii, 8-bit longs as defined within Oberon System V4, Swiss version

About the inconsistencies:
> There seem to be (at least) two inconsistencies within help files:
> \help\help.txt: "503 Error Message - Service Unvailble (quota finished)"
> \conf\help.hlp: HelpMessageError503	PLEASE DO NOT MAKE ANY NEW
help.hlp generates a short 1 or 2 line help message placed in the first
page: Usually it tries to explain more what happened.
> Same error number, but different text.
> Or used at different times or places?

Please use the getsize.txt file here because help.txt file is older and
thus does not mention everything (just the basics). 
I think the K works!.

> \help\help.txt: GETSIZE sets the size of the www4mail reply message in bytes (no other symbols are allowed)
> \help\getsize.txt: GETSIZE accepts figures in bytes or with a
> surfix K for kilobyte.
> "no other symbols are allowed" would mean: no surfix "K", wouldn't it?
> Please clarify.
