    I can confirm this--I was working with a draft web site made by a
    student assistant, and when I went to view it, IE asked if I wanted to
    install a Korean font. Turns out that Dreamweaver on his
    Korean-localized system had set the encoding to euc-kr, even though
    there was nothing beyond us-ascii.
