      Yes, that too. First you need to shut up that server. You might need
      help from your provider, but this line in .htaccess ought to be the
      first step:

      AddDefaultCharset Off

      See: http://wsabstract.com/howto/htaccess.shtml

      You might even be able to make it declare the correct set, but few
      providers offer that.


      Then your header should contain the line:

      <META HTTP-EQUIV="Content-Type" CONTENT="text/html; charset=US-ASCII">

      or

      <META HTTP-EQUIV="Content-Type"
      CONTENT="text/html; charset=windows-1252">

      And last you should use Firefox and the "Html Validator" extension for
      testing, the easiest and quickes way for flagging all those syntax
      errors that will creep in, however diligent you try to be.
