Subject Re: Problem with french accents using mod perl

Even with the entities, character set issues pop up because browsers , 
and users, can be stupid.

i've had character entities show up wrong on browsers because of one 
stupid setting or another.   I think the last Safari upgrade to osx 
messed them up.

I'd suggest doing a
	AddDefaultCharset UTF8
or whatever charset needed to the appropriate host section of your 
httpd.conf file
