Dear Perl Monger Leaders,

If your website isn't hosted on the groups.pm.org server, you can skip
this email.

On November 1st, 2009, we are planning to change the default charset
that the webserver reports from ISO-8859-1 to UTF-8.

This will make it easier for those of you who require special
characters to use them on the website.  (Sadly, Klingon characters are
not yet included.)

If your current site uses accented characters in ISO-8859-1 (aka "high
bit" characters) you will need to convert them to UTF-8.

The easiest way to do this is to run:
 cp filename filename.orig
 iconv -f ISO-8859-1 -t UTF-8 filename.orig > filename
(across all your files)

Remember, you need to do this on your local copy and re-upload them.

If your site only uses HTML Entities (i.e. &eacute;) to represent
accented characters, you don't need to change anything.

I've taken a quick scan over the files, and most fall into that latter

If you have any questions, please email support на pm.org.  If you have a
lot of files to convert, let us know, and we will try and help.

Request pm.org Technical Support via support на pm.org

С уважением,
Анатолий Шарифулин.
