[OT] does the charset lie?

Discussion in 'Python' started by Skip Montanaro, May 2, 2004.

  1. I know this is off-topic for this group, but I am analyzing this text with
    Python... ;-)

    Given an HTML file with this meta tag:

    <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">

    and all individual characters being legitimately in the iso-8859-1 character
    set, but with this numeric entity:



    is the charset correct or should it have been utf-8?

    Thx,

    Skip
