See the given URL. While it'd be better if the site were explicit in its encoding, auto-detect shouldn't be getting this wrong. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Set character encoding to universal autodetection using View -> Character Encoding - > Auto-Detect -> Universal. 2. Visit a page on the BBC 606 message board which contains £ figures. Actual Results: Page is detected and rendered as gb18030, and strings starting with a £ sign are rendered as �. Expected Results: Page is detected and rendered as windows-1252 or appropriate and £ signs are shown normally.
