Description

15 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.2; en-US; rv:1.4b) Gecko/20030601 Mozilla Firebird/0.6
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.2; en-US; rv:1.4b) Gecko/20030601 Mozilla Firebird/0.6

On the page http://www.driverheaven.net/ source specifies ISO-8859-1 as charset.
When this page is loaded in Mozilla, charset changes to ISO-8859-15.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Go to http://www.driverheaven.net/
2. Wait until it fully loads.

Actual Results:  
View/Character coding will display ISO-8859-15 as active.

Expected Results:  
It should be ISO-8859-1, as the page specifies.
The server sends the following header:

  Content-Type: text/html; charset=iso-8859-15

And this setting should (and does) override the <meta> tag in the page.

How to verify that?

You can use http://webtools.mozilla.org/web-sniffer/ for the raw header (or
Telnet, curl, wget or something similar).

But someone has changed the webserver in the mean time : it now sends the
correct charset (iso-8859-1).

Webmaster has been contacted about it a minute after I got the first response.
If he has changed it, then it's fixed.

Thanks for help :)
