    utf-8 and IE

    I've been using

    <!doctype html>
    <html>
    <head>
    <meta charset="UTF-8">

    IE 8 seemed ok (checked on local network) but when I tried a couple of internet cafes, the UTF 8 was garbled. Also, not sure of the IE version on one of these.

    Is there a way to guarantee charset UTF-8 for IE, all versions...?
    including IE.9 which I haven't investigated ?

    I'm happy to go back to html 4 if it keeps things simple.

    cheers

    In your text editor, make sure your HTML file is encoded as UTF-8, because telling the browser that your page is UTF-8 only works if you page actually is UTF-8.
    for(split(//,'))*))91:+9.*4:1A1+9,1))2*:..)))2*:31.-1)4131)1))2*:3)"'))
    {for(ord){$i+=$_&7;grep(vec($s,$i++,1)=1,1..($_>>3)-4);}}print"$s\n";

    You mean e.g. special characters being written as entities?
