Chapter 3. Basic (X)HTML Structure > Declaring the Encoding

Declaring the Encoding

All text documents, (X)HTML files included, are saved with a character encoding. Since there are many encodings in use in the world, it’s a good idea to declare which encoding your page was saved in right in the (X)HTML code. This makes it easier for browsers on systems with different default encodings to view the characters in your pages correctly.
