This is a test page for UNICODE UTF-8 encoding.

UNICODE is a really great 2-bytencoding that gives every letter of any writing system in the world a unique code number. Therefore, on one page you can write in various writing systems - this was impossible before UNICODE existed, because you had to switch to various codepages depending on language, like "Latin 1", "Latin 2" or "Cyrillic". Now you can have it all in one single web page! Our example shows Latin letters with diacritical marks of Central European languages and Cyrillic characters.

If you can see all letters in the middle column of the table as they are in the right column your browser supports UNICODE UTF-8 encoding.
Your browser should automatically switch to UNICODE encoding because this page contains "charset=utf-8" tag in header.

This page covers only some subsets of UNICODE used for Central and East European languages. If you want to test another UNICODE subset try UNICODE HTML pages by James Kass.
This is what your browser shows...

As far as I know, only Netscape Communicator (4.0 and newer) and MS Internet Explorer (4.0 and newer) support UNICODE encoding. If your browser doesn't support UNICODE you have to update to one of these programs.
