By checking the used character set, it was Chinese Simplified (gb18030). By checking META and http header information there was no encoding information provided by the site. When I turned Auto-Dedect OFF, it used default Western and showed the sites correct. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Set Character encoding to Auto-Dedect Universal. 2. Surf on a site without encoding information. 3. Special characters are not recognised. Actual Results: e.g. Average Cost: �,794 Expected Results: e.g. Average Cost: £125,794
Gunther, can you try again with setting Edit/Preferences.../Navigator/Languages/Default Character Encoding and here choose Western ISO-8859-1 or ISO-8859-15 If the server does not define character set in the http headers (I checked with Delorie's http headers) and if the page has no info (like a meta) on the character encoding, then I believe your default character encoding will be used.
