    Francois Compton-Roberts recently bemoaned the treatment of a cedilla as
    it passed through many a networked machine. For those readers of Humanist
    with an interest in such matters, Mike Brown's introduction to XML with an
    emphasis on character encoding gives a detailed explanation of some of the
    technical details....


    Maybe some other resourceful soul can locate a how to check and change the
    default encodings of one's favourite platform.
