Use a character encoding based on the Unicode character set, which 
includes (for the most part) all characters available in older encodings.

It's a reasonable idea to use the Unicode encoding UTF-8 for *all* pages 
these days, rather than legacy encodings. (It's especially gratifying to 
be able to say goodbye to the horrors lurking in DBCS...)
