Hi Srinivas

a couple of things come to mind.

It depends on the source they obtained IE from, I've noticed that some
sources (created with IEAK) do not include the auto-select module or any of
the language packs.

Its possible that auto-select module is not installed. It it is installed it
may be turned off. Go to the 'View' menu then to the 'Encoding' sub-menu. If
auto-select is active, it will have a tick beside it.
