Which browser are you using? That's an important factor. Also, have any
symbols have been embedded in these pages which are not interpetable by
Iso-8559-1? As you mentioned a forum (thus open content), has anything
been entered in Cyrillic? That might explain why Iso-8559-1 is overridden,
supposedly in order to 'help' you. I don't think a hybrid of encodings is
ever possible, so an encoding fallback is assumed to be preferable.
