I don't think you can see the encoding of the HTML document reproduced
in a magazine. And I was not addressing that quirk of reading
HTML in magazines, but when you have the actual file with the
HTML statements.

If you read the HTML in a magazine, well then you just read the 
abstract characters. If you want to use the URL, then you type
it in to your browser and then you are in the case described by
Martin and Frangois.
