Most definitions I've seen describe 8859-15 as "intended to replace
I assumed that the encoding in the meta tag would be exactly the same as
the encoding in the http headers. Any objection to that? I think
switching from 8859-1 to 8859-15 is a separate issue, worth discussing.
For instance, how much software supports 8859-15?
Or to rephrase, is there any that doesn't? I've sued it on all my pages for
now, and I can't recall any browser that fails to render because of the encoding.
I must try the shopping basket I've just written (option for Euros) in Lynx.
