I tried it on Netscape 4.7 on Linux, it shows no problem at all.  Both wave
dash and tilde look fine in the combo box.  However, I saw the same problem
on IE 6.0 as you described.  It really may be the browser problem

I think this is a browser's problem. Try the attached HTMLs.

The result I got:

              WAVE DASH in OPTION      NCR       UTF-8
IE 6.0                                 box        OK
Mozilla 1.0.0 on Debian                 ?         ?
