Not 100% sure where this fault lies, as I can load the same pages through a quick and dirty jetty server(running on localhost) into my firefox(1.5, 1.6a1) and mozilla browsers and they work fine, but they work fine from the Internode apache server through Internet Explorer. I have four pages up there (encoded to UTF-8 with and without the BOM, and with and without the charset header):,,,

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
Head to those pages.

Actual Results:  
 私 は メジュ です。

Expected Results:  
私 は メジュ です。

Running up a jetty server and openning a port through my firewall then loading the pages through firefox from somewhere else via the internet also works correctly. So it is definately a problem between Internodes Apache server and Firefox. Cannot tell you what apache version they are running.

Setting the page encoding manually causes it to show correctly.
I have tried setting auto detect to off, japanese, universal etc with no joy.
That server sends:
  Content-Type: text/html; charset=ISO-8859-1

Changing that to UTF-8 should fix this. not a bug.
