Jean,

Changing charset from iso-8859-1 to windows-1252 gives the same result.
This is certainly a bug.

Here are three files that have essentially the same content with
character set declared as iso-8859-1, windows-1253 and utf-8:
http://ahangama.com/charset-iso-8859-1.htm
http://ahangama.com/charset-windows-1252.htm
http://ahangama.com/charset-utf-8.htm

Apparently, utf-8 file has no problems. However all the files on the
following web site *must* be declared as iso-8859-1 to display
properly. If I use utf-8, non-ASCII characters do not get displayed!
Now, who can explain that?

Thanks,

JC
