Hi Alberto!
If you or some others have problems with this, just ask here and I do my best 
to clarify.

Just after I post the rss feed, I get the idea to check how the browsers works 
( how to set the Text Encodings in the browsers ).

As it is about html files that should have a meta tag with the used Text 
Encodings, the browsers is using the meta tag so the document would be opened 
in correct Text Encodings. It looks like some of the browsers call it "Default" 
when it looks for the meta tag. Camino need to be set to "Automatically Detect 
Page Encoding" to read the meta tag. So if the browser user have set the Text 
Encoding in the browser to iso-latin and looks at a "Swedish utf-8" page it is 
not looking good.

In mostly browsers the settings for Text Encodings is in the View menu.

And perhaps some noticed that the characters always looks the same (correct) 
what ever encoding is used, yes that is correct when you use the ascii table 
letter a-z / 0-9 (us-ascii) they always showing up correct, but when using 
Swedish ÅÖÄ or Danish æ ø then it is going to be critical and need to be saved 
and opened in correct encodings.
