    Firefox is happy with considering the page to be Unicode (UTF-8). There are at least two types of Unicode - UTF-8 and UTF-16 - recognized by Firefox.. Tom

      This web page
      http://www.aotc.net/Chronology.htm

      has this HTML

      <meta content="text/html; charset=unicode" http-equiv="Content-Type">

      My software / Windows considers "unicode" to be CP1200, which would be
      fixed 16bit characters, but the page is obviously made of 8 bit
      characters.

      Firefox claims that it is ISO-8859-1. ("show page properties")

      is the statement charset=unicode correct, does it make any sense?

      Does firefox assume ISO-8859-1 because unicode does not make any sense?

      ... Right, but the point is that the meta tag Content-Type charset=unicode is just plain bogus. The page referenced was, no-doubt, hand coded. -- daniel norton
