With auto detect (Chinese) enabled, encoding of NYT is reported as Simplified Chinese (gb18030). This mangles special characters such as bullets, and shows ugly scaled text for p13 serif (times). Seems to be a regression with 1.0RC1
With auto-detect set to Universal, I see NYT encoding is reported as Central European (ISO 8859-2). I installed 1.0RC1 today by replacing the Mac OS X package (but retaining the preference resources installed by earlier Mozilla Mac OS X builds).
Confirm when auto-detect Chinese, it detect as gb18030(it's not a good auto-detect option though) and auto-detect All detect as ISO 8859-2. Reassign to shanjian.

The home page has been updated, so I can no longer reproduce the problem. But anyway, I could understand what's happening. GB18030 covers a lot more code points, and that make it possible to interpret the page as gb18030. There is no much we can do in this situation. Autodetection can never be prefect. The universal detector problem have been fixed in trunk. Branch landing is pending.
With auto-detect Universal, the NY times is detected as latin1 iso-8859-1. And for auto-detect Chinese we might not able work correct on those kind of case right now per Shanjian's comment. Mark as verified.
