Huh? It's a text encoding. You should keep everything through the Content-Type
ASCII (that only uses LF, CR and HT and graphic characters, so it's also legal
SCSU), and properly label the Content-Type, just like you'd do with any
non-ASCII encoding. The only question I have is whether you put a BOM/signature
on it. UTF-16 HTML usually goes out with a BOM. Does everything support UTF-8
HTML with a BOM?
