Publish multilingual HTML documents on web in UTF-8 encoding

Filed under: Experiences, Research — abbe @ 1336

I want to publish a multilingual HTML document (encoded in UTF-8) on one of my Geocities.com account but due to HTML specifications, I’m unable to publish it. We (me and some of linux-delhi mailing list members) had a discussion on this bug, which is available from http://thread.gmane.org/gmane.user-groups.linux.delhi/12845/focus=12845. In short, the problem is that the Content-Type header specified through <meta> tag in HTML page is not given priority over server’s Content-Type header, which in case of Geocities.com and other HTTP/1.1 compliant webservers default to ISO-8859-1 encoding. So even if your document is encoded in UTF-8, fully tagged according to HTML standards, the compliant HTML web browser will decode it as ISO-8859-1 not UTF-8. This bug is still not resolved.

Hooray, Now this blog is Valid XHTML 1.0 Strict, though tentatively (coz, it doesn’t have proper DOCTYPE declaration) . But at last, I’m a bit :-) , though this page contains invalid CSS :-( .

I’m back in blogging world after this, I found WordPress (actually recommended by carthik on #ubuntu-in @ irc.freenode.net ). Well my blog now officially confirms to XHTML v1.0 Transitional, I will soon move it to XHTML v1.0 Strict (unofficially).

And now I’ve imported all my posts and comments from my Blogger account.
