Gaim has no such option. In theory it shouldn't need one, it should format
your text as appropriate for the protocol, and the client that receives it
should display it correctly. Since it sounds like this isn't happening,
there must be a bug in either Gaim or your mate's client. Since your mate
isn't complaining about everyone, that makes me suspect Gaim. But without
knowing what version of Gaim and what protocol you're using to talk to your
friend, (also your friends' client would be useful information), it's
difficult to track down and fix such a bug.
