Email subject line: to paste or not to paste

Here is a great tip from Joshua Fruchter of LawyerCasting about not pasting text into the subject line when sending out an email blast.  Its possible that non-supported characters could get included so, for example, a readers sees, “Important change in ?employment? law.”

To play devil’s advocate, the reason I use copy and paste is to avoid the obvious typo my lousy typing frequently produces.  What about just saying make sure your email application will display your cut and pastes correctly and adequately testing your email communications before sending them off into cyberspace?
