My previous attempt to send this mail was rejected by the list as
spam. If this one will not appear on the list, would you be so kind to
forward it to the list and the listmaster?

The relevant fragment of the postcard in a loose translation is

    Use the following address: <Abbreviation1> <Abbreviation2> <name>...
    <Abbreviation1> is the abbreviation of magister.

I don't think your rendering

   Mr is the abbreviation of magister.

has the same meaning.

Please note that I didn't asked *whether* to encode the abbreviation. I
asked *how* to do it.

If you think it is impossible to encode it in Unicode (without using
PUA), just say this explicitely.

BTW, I find it strange that nobody refers to an old thread
