Those who want to test their browsers can have a look at
Since you mention "windows-1252", I wonder, why there has no MIME
identifier for the Microsoft Windows Code Page CP1252 been registered in
CP1252 is documented on
and is extremely widely used.
Microsoft have registered "windows-1251", "windows-1253", etc. but not
"windows-1252". There also is no other charset in the registry that
looks equivalent ("ISO-8859-1-Windows-3.1-Latin-1" seems to be a
specific old version without the euro sign and quotes a PCL5 manual as
the official reference).
Very strange. could someone from Microsoft and IANA please look into
