It very well should, but it will not if you have no language preferences
set. Go to Tools->Internet Options->Languages and check. For US users,
us-en should be added by default, but YMMV.

Subject: http_Accept_charset and internet explorer

Hi, 

I need a sanity check. I am performing experiments on browsers and http
accept_charset.
I have seen documentation from Microsoft that IE 5+ issues the
accept_charset.
However, my program never sees accept_charset from IE 5.5 or 6. 
The program reports its content for netscape and opera browsers.

I would just presume that IE doesn't set this, except for the doc I have
seen saying it does.
So I am wondering if I have a bug or the doc lies, or maybe there is
some condition determining whether IE does or doesn't send
accept_charset.

Has anyone else detected accept_charset from IE and is there some
browser switch for it?
