It seems that it started a little over a week ago. I am puzzled.
Could it be something with the forum software??
Looking at the HTML page source for the thread Xander lists in the first
post above, the Content-Type is declared as 8859:
Code: Select all
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">
By default, it auto-detects the character encoding, and the Validator says
the encoding is UTF-8.
Web server software sends information about a document to the browser
before it sends the document itself. The Validator result tells me that the
LibriVox Web server is declaring the encoding of forum Web pages to be
UTF-8, which overrides the Content-Type declaration inside the HTML of
the Web page (at least in the Firefox/Mozilla/Netscape family of browsers).
PHP allows the sending of such document information.
I ran the home page and a page from the wiki through the Validator:
they also auto-detect as UTF-8.
This suggests it's system-wide on the LibriVox Web server, not just with phpBB.
