Yes or no. The document internally has
<META http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=ISO-8859-1">
so that's what comes into force locally.

Probably the best thing to do is to convert the document to UTF-8 (also 
changing the above line), and then update/republish it.

Another alternative is to ask sysreq to change the encoding it's served 
with (but that would be a step back).

Regards,   Martin.
