I want to have a selection option on my website that allows the user to change the character encoding of the page in the same way as would happen if they changed the settings in their browser.
example. in firefox to change the encoding of a page i select VIEW->CHARACTER ENCODING-> UTF-8
I would like to have this as an option on my website
The reason for this is that the site will be recieving data in theses formats and when the user views the page some of the characters will not be visible until the character encoding is changed.
Since the data displayed will come from a post form it would be much more convieninet to use the browser to change the encoding and better to have a button than trying to teach the users how to use thier borwsers.
I dont want to have to re-retrieve the data from the database whenever anybody changes their encoding.
