This is an update, in a temporary location, of the tutorial Character encodings in HTML and CSS. (Please be careful about bookmarking the location, since it is only temporary. )

A lot of new material was added, eg. related to the UTF-8 BOM, normalization, etc., and I rearranged the material significantly.  The rearrangement was to downplay slightly the XHTML 1.0 issues, given that that is now only relevant to IE6, but also to help readers more quickly find information they need for the format they are dealing with.

The explicit distinction between XHTML 1.0 and XHTML 1.1 with regard to MIME types was removed, since the XHTML2 WG is hopefully very close to issuing a PER that enables XHTML 1.1 to be served as text/html.  

The update adds information about HTML5.

Where a section corresponds to an article that has been updated, those updates were also migrated to this document.
