I had Apache 1.3 - it worked perfectly with all languages I needed to work with. Now I installed Apache 2, made necessary changes in httpd.conf - but I couldn't get Latvian language (Windws-1257 code page) working properly, unless I added AddDefaultCharset WINDOWS-1257. BUT - as soon as I did it, all Russian pages are also encoded by this CodePage. It doesn't matter that AutoSelect is active in IE6 View-->Encoding settings and page has embedded tag <META HTTP-EQUIV="Content-Type" CONTENT="text/html; charset=windows-1251">. Charset is Baltic (Windows). If I select Cyrillic (Windows), page is reloaded correctly. But again - only until the next page or refresh, and again everything is back to Baltic (Windows).
Why Charset which is set in HTML page is ignored???

Sorry, but your problem does not imply a bug in PHP itself.  For a
list of more appropriate places to ask for help using PHP, please
visit as this bug system is not the
appropriate forum for asking support questions. 

Thank you for your interest in PHP.

Browser issue.
