Many WAP sites (e.g. http://wap.mbl.is/)use
ISO-8859-1 as default WML encoding. WML is XML, and XML uses UTF-8 as the default encoding, unless the MIME type says otherwise.
So my question is: Does the MIME type "text/vnd.wap.wml" imply that ISO-8859-1 is the default character encoding?
In the absence of information provided by an external transport protocol (e.g. HTTP or MIME), it is an error [...] for an entity which begins with neither a Byte Order Mark nor an encoding declaration to use an encoding other than UTF-8.
