At the Tech Plen, Addison ran a small tool on the /International site that detected some encoding anomalies.  

I have just spent a long time converting all the files under /International to utf-8 and adjusting various .htaccess files.  

There should now be no need to explicitly associate files or directories with utf-8 under /International.  Directories that hadn't been set to utf-8 by default (using a .htaccess file) have now got a .htaccess file that sets all files to iso-8859-1 (the previous default). 

So hopefully things are now a lot clearer.

I expect there will still be some anomalies, but we can probably address those as we go forward.
