Jasmine, wow! thats really cool stuff. thanks!
i tought if there was an ez (or sure) way to detect charset if its not declared in META tag, browser makers would use it. in this case, i guess, "charset" in meta tag would get obsolete or not there in a first place. but right now both IE and NS just display page w/ last encoding you've selected manually if no charset specified on a page. default charset (according to HTTP 1.1) is ISO-8859-1, but browsers do their own thing - which in fact is very usefull most of the times for a user...
if page was ment to be in ISO-8859-1 (or just english) any needed international would be entered in html file as escape sequence.
