Which argues in favour of utf-8 for everyone, provided the clients
support it. The apparently strange values you quoted before will
display as the correct characters if the browser is set to utf-8.
Otherwise you have to get messy and deliver different encodings to
different clients (if you are indeed sending Japanese to those
Japanese users: if you're simply sending Latin script to people in
Japan whose browsers may be expecting Shift-JIS or EUC you'll may get
away with it - depends just what accented characters you want to
