All of eBay's bid histories have the tag <META http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-16">, but the documents don't seem to be in UTF-16. If you load it, you get a page of trash. If you go to View->Character Encoding->Western (ISO-8859-1), it renders fine.

I believe I resolved it correctly the first time. Neither I nor anyone else made a code change to bring about the current status. Though the descrption for Worksforme leave a bit to be desired, that is the closest to what happened to this bug. But I won't expend more energy on this.
All Evangelism Bugs are now in the Product Tech Evangelism. See bug 86997 for details.

Kat, in general if the site fixes their content so that it works then an Evangelism bug is fixed. If the site has a problem reported but it can not be reproduced then it is works for me. either way: <!--A http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-1--> <meta HTTP-EQUIV="Content-Type" CONTENT="text/html; charset=ISO8859-1"> verified
