The article states: "This graph is from Google internal data, based on our
indexing of web pages, and thus may vary somewhat from what other search
As we all know, there's a lot of pages that are either using a wrong
encoding in the preamble or in the headers. So I guess Google uses some
simple algorithm that looks at what the page says, what the server says and
whether or not that matches whatever it encounters on the page itself and
adjusts it as necessary.
Would not make much sense to store mojibake.
