Daniel, you're perfectly right. More than that, I should have noticed
that as the content-type of Kishore's message is ISO-8859-15
quoted-printable, =A0 cannot be some sort of UTF-8 since U+00A0 is
2-byte long in UTF-8 (so =C2=A0 in QP):-/

Hence this =A0 character is finally perfectly legal in Kishore's
message, although still quite unexpected since it did not appear in
Anne's original message.

The "?" in Anne's reply is yet always explainable since it appears in a
us-ascii 7 bit part, which cannot encode characters above 0x7F.
