    Currently it is, but there are sticky issues: in particular, a default encoding
    overrides information in HTML meta elements as well as browser heuristics,
    at least for modern browsers.

    Consequently, random pages that happen to be in non-Unicode charsets are
    getting mis-served and mis-displayed. The site will probably revert to
    having no default as a result, which is a great pity.

    Talk to Sarasvati if you have a better idea.

    And legacy HTML, it seems.
