Thanks for the quick reply.
"Menu item: View - Encoding - Autodetect - OFF"
-- The "Auto" is checked with me, too, initially.
"Default character encoding: F2 - tab Languages - the bottom selector"
-- The "selector" seems to generate a line in the file prefs.js
I don't know what else this clickable control achieves.
If I understand correctly, "intl.charset.default" is a weak command
to the browser to display the incoming text or existing file, let
us say, in charset iso-8859-1, instead of in another codepage, and ONLY
if there is not a stronger instruction from somewhere else (e. g. a http
header), which would then override it. The "intl.charset.default" has
little or nothing to do with the charset detector (guesser), I think.

-- Thank you for bringing it up, I did not see this page before,
but, honestly I don't understand it, so I'll keep reading it and try
to figure it out more. I would like to find them (the dlls) and delete
them to see if K-Meleon will work just as well without them -- as an
experiment, if nothing else.
Let me explain what I am trying to do.
Some WWW pages and articles are presented (delivered) correctly, but some
Here is an example of an HTML page I was reading and would like to print.
Besides being good and informative about 20th century history, it has a small
number of words in Vietnamese, German and Spanish. If I understand this part
correctly, the page itself is properly encoded in iso-8859-1, and should
display properly in any browser, except that it is sent out by the Apache
with a header
which is wrong, and which causes K-Meleon to show a "?" instead of the
correct letter. I would like to force a change to the correct 8859-1 letter
by clicking an item on the menu. But first I would want to keep the charset
detector, if on (how can I be certain?) from interfering with a wrong guess.
Perhaps this is possible and maybe even easy to do, but I've got it right
with K-Meleon only once, and cannot repeat the experiment. This is where
I am now.
