So, if browser has no autodetection capabilities enabled (based on lexic analysys) some language-specific versions of manual will not be shown properly and require user to set charset manually (Particularly

We pass <?xml version="1.0" encoding="KOI8-R" ?> to the browser, I for example can view it just fine really ...

I'd think any modern browser detects that just fine, if not then point me to which and I'll think about adding that meta mess :)

I've checked with IE6sp1 (including MyIE) and Opera 7.53
Gecko-browsers work fine. Opera works fine if "Cyrillic - Automatic detection" is enabled (not default setting) and by default it worka in version Opera8beta
Didn't check under *nix browsers.

The Hungarian version needs iso-8559-2, now it is <?xml version="1.0" encoding="iso-8859-1" ?>.

This results in wrong characters like the word on the right of the "(Next)" link on the main page, html entity #245 is displayed instead of the character itself @

Here is the server response (wget -S output):
HTTP request sent, awaiting response...
  HTTP/1.1 200 OK

It contains no encoding information so it must be the <?xml ?> iso-8859-1 stuff at the top that causes the problems. Could you please change it to iso-8859-2 for .hu?

This bug has been fixed in CVS.

In case this was a documentation problem, the fix will show up at the
end of next Sunday (CET) on

In case this was a website problem, the change will show
up on the website in short time.
Thank you for the report, and for helping us make PEAR better.
