  +  <H3>Invalid character set names</H3>
  +
  +  <P>
  +  The character set name parameters of CharsetSourceEnc and CharsetDefault
  +  must be acceptable to the translation mechanism used by APR on the system
  +  where mod_charset_lite is deployed.  These character set names are not 
  +  standardized and are usually not the same as the corresponding values used 
  +  in http headers.  Currently, APR can only use iconv(3), so you can easily
  +  test your character set names using the iconv(1) program, as follows:
  +  </P>
  +
  +  <PRE>
  +  iconv -f charsetsourceenc-value -t charsetdefault-value
  +  </PRE>
  +
  +  <H3>Mismatch between character set of content and translation rules</H3>
  +
  +  <P>
  +  If the translation rules don't make sense for the content, translation
  +  can fail in various ways, including:
  +  </P>
  +
  +  <SL>
  +  <LI>
  +  The translation mechanism may return a bad return code, and the connection
  +  will be aborted.
  +  <LI>
  +  The translation mechanism may silently place special characters (e.g., question
  +  marks) in the output buffer when it cannot translate the input buffer.
