we should talk to UI person to allocate 3-5 control key for encoding menu and 
allow user to customize it. bobj- can you talk to ui folks to allocate it ?

ezh@infonet.ee,
For labeled pages, invoking the Character Coding menu is unnecessary.
Have you tried using the
     View|Character Coding|Auto-Detect|Auto-Detect (Russian)
The Netscape Commercial build also includes
    View|Character Coding|Auto-Detect|Auto-Detect (All)

This should make it so that no user intervention is needed.

Reassigning the UI request to German.

So? Are we gonna close the bug?

Did my alternative work for what you need?
IMHO, we should add short-cut keys to only things that be used frequently by
many users.  The hope, with the auto-detection feature, was to actually
minimize the user interaction with the Character Coding menu.  The expectation
is that the menu is there when pages are not labeled, not auto-detectable, or
mislabeled.

Do you think the short-cut key would be used a lot?  If not, please close
the bug.  Otherwise, let's discuss the usability issues.  Maybe there are
other alternatives.  Thanks.

I believe that when the bug was filled there wasn't autodetect yet, or it 
doesn't worked.

I belive this bug autodetect is covered by autodetecting.

Tnx.

Closing as WONTFIX.  Please file another bug if the autodetection does not
work as "advertised"! :-)
