#574 ✓invalid
Adam Luter serves wrong encoding (iso-8859-1 should be utf-8)

Reported by Adam Luter | July 8th, 2008 @ 02:16 PM | in 2.x

The meta tag is incorrect on, it lists iso-8859-1 which should be utf-8. (Just look at the main page, an apostrophe is incorrectly interpreted).

    OK, I'm sure your busy, but it would help if you added a small comment as to why it's invalid. The docs are in UTF-8 and is setting the meta tag to iso-8859-1. And this is causing an issue with a few UTF-8 characters that are in the documents. There are other bugs on this tracker for, so I presume it's OK to have more?
