quoted printable encoding
An encoding method that converts binary data into ASCII text and vice versa and is one of the methods used by MIME. This method is good for text that contains an occasional 8-bit character. The 7-bit text is kept the same, and only the 8-bit text is encoded. See base64.
An encoding method that converts binary data into ASCII text and vice versa. It is commonly used to send non-text files via the Internet's email system (see MIME). Base64 divides each set of three bytes of the original data into four 6-bit units, which it represents as four 7-bit ASCII characters. This typically increases the original file by about a third. See quoted printable encoding.
