HANDS-ON: RUSSIAN > CHARACTER SET CONFLICTS

CHARACTER SET CONFLICTS

HTML allows you to specify only one character set (encoding) per web page. For web pages that feature only Cyrillic and ASCII characters, this is no problem: You specify Windows 1251. But there is a problem with the Tower of Babel page: At the top of the web page, the global gateway includes two characters that are not included in 1251—accented Latin characters. Compare the 1251 and 1252 character sets in Figure 3 to see the problem.

Figure 3. Notice how the characters of Windows 1251 (left) and 1252 (right) vary. In particular, notice that 1251 does not include accented Latin characters.
