Hi,

I have some problems with characters encoding.

Suppose I have a tag : 

<meta name="content-type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8">

Can I write directly (that's to say without using entities) any
iso-8859-1 character ? IE accepts it (maybe because it doesn't recognize
the preceding tag), but Netscape no (it only displays characters between
the beginning and 128).

Suppose now I have the same tag with iso-8859-1.

Can I generate non-iso-8859-1 characters through a CSS stylesheet (which
recognizes utf-8 characters) ?

Thanks for your answers.

				Nicolas
