    Apparently so, in cases we notice and complain about. I often see <?> glyps where typesetter chars like curved apostrophes were supposed to be, or characteristic UTF-8-as-Latin-1 pairs, in web pages.

    They don't tend to write conforming HTML by any means, so that might have to do with it. Without a DOCTYPE, anything goes, right? I've seen the charset meta tag overridden with header values from the server, without regard to what's actually in the file.
