From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:0.9.8+) Gecko/20020302 BuildID: 2002030208 Character coding is detected as Central European (ISO-8859-2), but the page is Western (ISO-8859-1). Happents on a very large number of pages with Western character coding. This bug is present on all builds I've used since at least 0.97 (can't remember before that), both stable and nightly. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: Just load an affected page. Actual Results: The page was rendered using ISO-8859-2 character coding (the View / Character Coding menu shows ISO-8859-2 as selected). Some characters ("-","'") are displayed as a white question mark in a black diamond. Expected Results: Should have detected ISO-88590-1 as the Character Coding (when I change it to this value in the View/Character Coding menu, the page is displayed correctly). Guess I should note that the system's (win2k) locale is set to English (US), with the language settings accepting Central European and Western (the latter being the default). In Mozilla, the default Character Coding is Western also, with "English/US [en-us]" and "English [en]" as accepted languages. The View/Character Coding/Auto-Detect option is set to "Universal".

I can reproduce the bug with build 2002030508 on win2000. Steps to reproduce 1. Set View/Character Coding/Auto-Detect option to "Universal" 2. Go to http://firingsquad.gamers.com/hardware/langearpreview/page2.asp 3. Look View/Character Coding, it is set to ISO-8859-2 With View/Character Coding/Auto-Detect option set to "(Off)", the page is treated as ISO-8859-1 (my default coding I guess)
Netscape 6.2 (build 20011019) displays the page as "Windows-1252" with Auto-Detect ALL; but when I use mozilla (2002-03-01) with Auto-Detect Universal, the page is displayed as "ISO-8859-2".
