Hi,

http://www.w3.org/International/tutorials/tutorial-char-enc/#declaring

has the following:

<quote>
If your document is dynamically created using scripting, you may be able 
to explicitly add this information to the HTTP header. If you are 
serving static files, this information can be associated with the files 
by the server. The method of setting up a server to pass character 
encoding information in this way will vary from server to server. You 
should check with the server administrator.

     As an example, Apache servers typically provide a default encoding,
       ....... examples are given .........

However, it doesn't refer to 'FAQ: Setting 'charset' information in 
.htaccess'.  I think it's a good idea to add a reference to the FAQ 
after giving two examples. Perhaps, something like the following would do:

For more details on declaring the character encoding using Apache 
servers, refer to <a href=".....">FAQ: Setting 'charset' information in 
.htaccess</a>. In addition, the faq has to be added to the further 
readings list at the end of the tutorial. By the same token, the FAQ may 
have to be listed in the reference section of  'Authoring Techniques for 
XHTML & HTML Internationalization: Characters and Encodings 1.0"
http://www.w3.org/International/geo/html-tech/tech-character.html

Btw, I have an FAQ idea.  'FAQ: Setting 'charset' information for 
dynamically generated web pages'. This should cover popular server-side 
methods for dynamic page generation (php, jsp, asp, perl, etc)
