Hi Mohan,

These look fine once I manually change my browser (Netscape 4.75/Linux) character set to UTF-8. It is possible to coax newer browsers to choose the right character set automatically by specifying it in the Content-Type header like so:

Content-Type: text/html; charset=utf-8
The ad+ versions of AOLserver have some built-in support for this (cf the "Character encodings" section of Building a Multilingual Web Service Using ACS ( by Davis, Lowry, and Minsky.

Isn't it amazing that so many people are unfamiliar with knäckebröd and surströmming?;-)
