Encoding Text Code Page Browser


- Info:

- When your browser, like Internet Explorer for instance, receives HTML page, it acctaully gets only a lot of bytes.

- For each byte it needs to display a letter on the screen.

- To do this it needs to know which byte represents which letter.

- It needs to know with which "code page" "web page" was created.

- We can tell him that by inserting following line inside <HEAD> tag:

<meta http-equiv="content-type" content="text/html; charset=ISO-8859-1">

- If browser gets byte with value 52 hex which is 82 decimal it knows it needs to display big letter R.
