HTML Entity Based Codepage Inference

HEBCI is a technique that allows a Web form handler to transparently detect the character set with which its data was encoded. By using carefully-chosen character references, the browser's encoding can be inferred. Thus, it is possible to guarantee that data is in a standard encoding without relying on (often unreliable) Web server/browser encoding interactions.

    fantastic idea
    This project solves a problem that the w3c and the IETF completely overlooked. It'll definitely fix a lot of incompatibilities I had with my projects and IE/Opera/FFs random character set choices.
