Hi Frank

Could you clarify: we're not sure what problem you refer to. Possibly:

- if you change encoding of your HTML, you should ensure no knock ons with other files
- class defined in another language
- something else?

Many thanks

I think you should mention not only charset with HTML, but also issue 
with CSS and seperate JavaScript file. The issue with \ unicode in CSS 
is quite tricky.
