I thought I was seeing things, but sure enough:
lynx http://en.wikipedia.org
  'Content-Type: text/html; charset=iso-8859-1'

Is there a plan to migrate all wikis to utf-8? at the very least it

to just force my browser (Safari) to utf-8 long enough to type the 
interwiki links.


If this is documented/discussed/argued somewhere else, let me know.   
I'm asking here from a policy point of view.    Is there a better 


And a big thank you to all who work on this project.  It's amazing how

mt.wikipedia.org is set to have a major and positive impact on the 
Maltese language online, possibly offline as well.

Grazzi Ħafna lilkom minn qalbi.
