Your news reader is automatically encoding high-bit characters in the news
headers according to RFC 2047. This is unrelated to INN; INN just accepts
the Subject that's provided and hands the same thing back out to clients.
You need to either tell your news reader not to encode subject headers or
teach the web application how to decode RFC 2047 encoding.
