Re: [tlug] html editor :) IBM Homepage Builder

Well, here's the proof that Dreamweaver is to blame.

I made the following file in JEdit:

<title>日本語 Shift-JIS テスト</title>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=Shift-JIS">

<body bgcolor="#FFFFFF" text="#000000">


I used shif-jis because JEdit does not support iso-2022-jp. I then tested
this on my home server and on my ISP, and the auto-detection worked in both
IE and N6.
