    I would be happy if just this

    <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8"/>

    would be enough to convince the browsers that the page is in UTF-8...
    It isn't if the HTTP server claims that the pages it serves are in
    ISO 8859-1. A sample of this is,
    it does have the meta charset, but since the webserver (,
    really, a server outside of my control) thinks it's serving Latin 1,
    I cannot help the wrong result. (I guess some browsers might do better
    work at sniffing the content of the page, but at least IE6 and Opera 6.05
    on Win32 seem to believe the server rather than the (HTML of the) page.
