When there's 8-bit (ISO Latin 1) characters in document title element, these are
shown in Mozilla window title with ugly string "%/ISO-8859-15" prefixing the
actual character. That character set code is propably originating from GNU Libc
2.2.x's Finnish locale (I've LC_CTYPE set to "fi_FI").

Could you specify the URL which has this problem?
For fine, short example of page with 8-bit characters on title, see
<URL:http://http://www.ling.helsinki.fi/kieliteknologia/kurssit/2000s/ctl310-mt/>
It isn't same page as I took pic of, but demonstrates same behaviour as well.
I don't see the problem using today's Linux build.

Works for me, please try again with the latest build.
I also can't reproduce it using Linux build 2001031308.  Marking as verified for
now.

Still there with 0.8.1/2001-03-26.

This in on unstable branch of Debian GNU/Linux with following locale affecting
packages:

libc6          2.2.2-4        GNU C Library: Shared libraries and Timezone
locales        2.2.2-4        GNU C Library: National Language (locale) data

mark it as future. This only happen when the character cannot be encoded in the 
user's locale
Priority: -- → P4
Target Milestone: --- → Future
How then it is possible to get the ugly charset name string on window title even
if the text is in charset (ISO-8859-1 or ISO-8859-15) which can be shown very 
well and share good deal of the character repertoire.

BTW, I think this bug may also have something to do with XFree86 4.x's increased 
knowledge of "international" charsets.

This seems to affect only to window managers that use WM_NAME(COMPOUND_TEXT).
New window managers seem to use _NET_WM_NAME(UTF8_STRING) property. (bug 90803)
