I know, this is discussed often, and I don't have anything against the test, just wanted to add a comment to it.


We changed from UTF-8 to the desired ISO encoding (we deliver the specific encoding depending on the user language - currently we have 27 languages) because there are some handset incompatibilities. 

Some handsets send the header, that they support UTF-8, but then produce error's with this encoding. 

Since these handsets were from different manufactures and also in our top 20 handsets we decided to produce only ISO encodings.


This was a decision nearly a Year ago. Maybe this has changed. And I think this will definitely in the future no problem, but currently we leave it as is.

I cannot remember exactly what phones that were, but I think one of them was Sony Ericsson K700i.



And btw, because of the Measures point, there is always an need to define 1px size of whatever for lines. And since we can produce for each handset the right page for their resolution we make everything in pixel... 


And thanks for the lot of work you guys put in here....
