Updated article: Declaring character encodings in CSS

This update brings the article in line with recent developments in CSS, and reorganizes the material so that readers can find information more quickly. This led to the article being almost completely rewritten.

The article addresses the question: How do I declare the character encoding of a CSS style sheet?

German, Greek, Spanish, Hebrew, Hungarian, Brazilian Portuguese, Russian, Swedish, Ukrainian and Vietnamese translators are asked to update their translation of this article within the next month, otherwise the translations will be removed per the translation policy, since the changes are substantive.

For review: 7 new and 3 updated articles about character encoding

Comments are being sought on the following new articles prior to final publication:

  1. Handling character encodings in HTML and CSS
  2. Essential definitions related to character encodings
  3. Choosing & applying a character encoding
  4. Character encoding declarations in HTML
  5. The byte-order mark (BOM) in HTML
  6. Normalization in HTML and CSS
  7. Characters or markup?

These articles have been derived from the former tutorial, which has already undergone a review. Since then, HTML5 has been brought to the fore in the articles and various small changes have been added, including some short summary information.

The three updated articles are the result of merging the tutorial material with existing articles. They are:

The character encoding section of the techniques page relating to HTML and CSS authoring has also been overhauled, to include the new material.

Please send any comments to www-international@w3.org (subscribe). We hope to publish a final version in one to two weeks.
