character sets and "Downloaded from"
- Could someone please explain to me about character sets, and specifically
why Windows seems to have one of its own. What effect would it have on curly
quotes and things?
Also, if I send someone an html document as an attachment to an email, why
and how does Outlook Express put at the top, "Downloaded from url so and
so"? This stops external links in the document from working. It can be
overcome by sending the document as txt and having the recipient change it
back on arrival, but I can't see a reason for an email client to mess with
Thanks for enlightenment on either of these questions.
