Let’s get one thing straight. If you’re still using ISO-* shit to have compatibility with people that aren’t using [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Utf-8|UTF-8]] yet, they will never upgrade.. Just use UTF-8 and so we all can use the most modern character encoding… and get on with our lives.
Like the [[http://xchat.org/encoding|XChat]] guys say:
Use Unicode ( UTF-8 ) and tell all your friends to use Unicode. Problem solved!
Using UTF 8 on your web page is as simply as including this tag on the //head// section:
And on a general Debian/Debian-based Linux system for using UTF-8 within applications issue:
# dpkg-reconfigure locales
and select UTF 8 if it’s not yet enabled.
Ubuntu users see [[http://www.morgadinho.org/blog/bliki/ubuntu|here]].
“Just do it”.
