SeaMonkey documentation of this feature is a bit better than what Firefox has, but it's still not detailed enough: ============================================================================== Mozilla can detect which character encoding a document uses, and can display it correctly on your screen. To take advantage of this capability, begin from the Navigator window: 1. Open the View menu, choose Character Encoding, and then choose Auto-Detect. 2. Choose one of the Auto-Detect options, or choose Off from the submenu. ============================================================================== What's missing here is a pros/cons approach to Off vs. Univeral vs. Auto-detection of specific language families. When should the user choose one over the other? Are there any caveats to take into consideration? Bug 185123 suggests that this menu be revamped, but until that happens, it should at least be documented better. Prog.
