... so I thought I'd mention that at least some browsers still don't think the Forum is in UTF-8, and that this could probably be fixed by adding
close to the top of the master page template, ideally right after <head>. The point where it says
<!-- ###### TRUSS CODE BEGINS HERE ###### -->
is unfortunately too late, because the "keywords" tag right before that appears to contain the complete text of the post, which will blow past the cutoff for character-set directives. (It has to be completely within the first 512 bytes of the document.)
You may have heard of a significantly more verbose way to write the same directive, so allow me to assure you that the short version works even with the really old browsers that were contemporaneous with DCF. :)
