Internet Explorer fails to read the UTF-8 character encoding in the XML statement, defaults
to western encoding.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

         Key: FOR-828
         URL: http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FOR-828
     Project: Forrest
        Type: Bug
  Components: Dispatcher (aka views)  
    Versions: 0.8-dev    
    Reporter: paul bolger


First four lines of Dispatcher rendered page:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-strict.dtd">
<html xmlns:forrest="http://apache.org/forrest/templates/1.0" xmlns:jx="http://apache.org/cocoon/templates/jx/1.0"
xmlns:i18n="http://apache.org/cocoon/i18n/2.1">
<head>

IE (win, version 6.0 - haven't tried others) misses the character encoding and defaults to
western 88 or whatever, messing up some characters. 
Putting a XHTML namespace declaration in the html tag seems to fix this, but skipping the
XML tag and adding a standard HTML metatag encoding would also do the trick. I'm not sure
on the relative merits of either approach but suspect neolithic browsers such as NS4.79 aren't
going to be impressed by namespaces...Might be better to go for the legacy option.
