Subject RE: AddDefaultCharset
Date Fri, 04 Feb 2000 12:54:58 GMT
1) I oppose a nameless default character set as a recipe for errors. I think
the charset name should be explicit.

2) I'm working on modules that derive character set from content instead of
file name. I think it could be argued that the default charset should not be
applied as early as mod_mime.c, but should be deferred until fixup handlers
have had a change to peek at the file content and decorate the type with a
charset. I'm not especially attached to this notion, though.
