While you're about it, is there a concensus on the

so I would heartily not recommend it.
Once conversion support for older, Unicode-broken browsers (wouldn't
trust them to do ISO 8859-15 either) is set up, the remaining Latin-1
sections of Wikipedia will move to UTF-8 (as Meta-Wikipedia, Wiktionary,
and many of the language sections of Wikipedia are already) so that
links and text are all in a compatible format.
