Question mark works perfectly on  Pidgin 2.7.3, Windows XP SP3, MSN, UK 
localised. What is your configuration?  Maybe your email program can't 
cope with the character, either, and you didn't actually type a "?".

Control-Alt-W does nothing in either notepad or Pidgin.  On a quick 
search I found no documentation suggesting it should do anything in 
Pidgin and there are no standard control-Alt shortcuts in Windows. 
Notepad doesn't seem to have any specific shortcuts.  What is your basis 
for assuming that Control-Alt-W will do anything?

RFC1855 says there should be an address here, but, in a world of spam,
that is no longer good advice, as archive address hiding may not work.
