While skimming the blogs of people from the recent
Cocoon GetTogether i found that there was a topic about
this issue. Bertrand summarised the talk ...
Lots of interesting points on how to handle this properly, including
* Being careful about HTTP headers matching charset definitions in html
* Using UTF-8 encoding as the only one that is found everywhere.
* Alan Wood's Unicode resources.
