Re: Diacritic Signs

If your browser isn't configured to use a given encoding how can the server
guess to use a different one?

Connection negotiation is often the hidden problem in many encoding debugging

Using UTF-8 works for almost everything.  UTF-16 does cover everything (very,
very nearly).  If your application can figure out what the source encoding is
and then transcode it into UTF-8 you'd be in good shape.  At least for a
majority of situations.
