The MUA (Mail User Agent) of the sender is broken.  "iso 8859-15" is
invalid, "iso-8859-15" would be correct.  (Note: ` ' vs. `-').

Tell the sender to fix the MUA.  Is there a User-Agent (or X-Mailer)
header in the message or do you know the sending MUA?

If you get the warning often and find it too annoying, you can add the
following to ~/.gnus.el:

(require 'mm-util)
(add-to-list 'mm-charset-synonym-alist '(iso 8859-15 . iso-8859-15))

Emacs 22 support iso-8859-15 out of the box.  The "weird" stuff
probably is the hackery for Emacs <= 21.2 or XEmacs.

Bye, Reiner.
