User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.8a2) Gecko/20040714 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.8a2) Gecko/20040714 I connect to a webserver, send GET /test/b.html HTTP/1.0 and get a response with Content-Type: text/html; charset=iso-8859-1 in the HTTP headers but a <meta http-equiv="Content-Language" content="he"> <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="Text/html; charset=windows-1255"> on the page itself. Both Mozilla (and MSIE BTW) display this page with ISO-8859-1, not windows-1255 . Why? Surely the web page knows better than the web server (which usually doesn't keep an charset value for each of the pages it serves) what its own charset is... I am 99% sure this bug is a dupe, but I can't only seem to find related bugs, not an identical one. Bug 237537 is related but it seems that bug is for cases where (supposedly) no Content-Type is sent by the server. PS - don't tell me to fix the web server, suppose it is not under my control. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce:
The server setting always gets precedence over the meta tag. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 214952 ***
