This chapter provides tutorial examples and notes about non-ASCII characters in HTML documents.

Basic Rules of Using Non-ASCII Characters in HTML Documents
French Characters in HTML Documents - UTF-8 Encoding
French Characters in HTML Documents - ISO-8859-1 Encoding
Chinese Characters in HTML Documents - UTF-8 Encoding
Chinese Characters in HTML Documents - GB2312 Encoding
Characters of Multiple Languages in HTML Documents
- You can only use one encoding schema in a HTML document. You should a <meta> tag
to specify the encoding name.
- Entering non ASCII characters into a HTML document with the desired encoding is a challenge.
If you are not sure on what encoding used by the editor to store HTML document, open the
document with another editor to validate.
- Use UTF-8 as the HTML document encoding instead of encodings of a particular
local language, like GB2312. This may cause problems for users on local systems
where Unicode fonts are not supported. But more and more local systems are supporting
Unicode and UTF-8 encoding.
