Hi,
        In the Netscape browser, we have an option , where we can
"Autodetect", the charater set encodings.The browser autodetects the
encodings and displays them.The encodings could be SJIS or UTF etc.,
How does netscape recognise the encodings??
Is it based on the headers only or the whole buffer is analysed??
