Thank you for rating this answer.

Can I use a character set/encoding apart from UTF-8?

It is strongly recommended that you use the default UTF-8 encoding for a number of reasons. These include:
  • The third-party Flash-based graphs/charts can only display special characters with a UTF-8 encoding.
  • Special characters in email subject lines can only be displayed when using a UTF-8 encoding (across all email clients).
  • Data passed through the third-party ajax library is output in UTF-8.
Therefore, it is very difficult to manage a site that is not using UTF-8 encoding. At best you could only partially convert the site and, at worst, certain functionality could break.
