Example site in the wild: http://vertikal.dk

Web site data: 

* Each page typicaly begins with *several* byte-order marks (sic)
* Many pages mixes UTF-8 and Windows-1252 encoding, even in the
   very same *sentence*: http://vertikal.dk/foto/hitlist.htm

Browser handling data:

* Opera and Firefox allows users to override the encoding.  
   However, to *very little* benfit for the user
* Internet Explorer and Webkit does not allow encoding to be overridden. 
* All browsers apears to be in quirks-mode
