Thanks a lot for the info. Indeed, Safari 2.0.4 on my Mac supports it well. I
should have tried it before asking.

Of course, I'm well aware of that. :-) I thought it's obvious that you should
set view | encoding to UTF-8 when reading my comment :-)  In your case,
characters not covered by the encoding in effect (most likely ISO-8859-1 or
Windows-1252) when you submitted comment were converted to NCRs and stored that
way on bugzilla DB so that simply changing the encoding on the browser-side
does not give back the original. In my case, UTF-8 byte sequences are stored in
the DB and 'emitted' to  a browser so that just changing the encoding works.

It took bugzilla.mozilla.org to fix that problem 5+ years !!! WebKit bugzilla
has only 13k bugs and I guess most of them are straight ASCII so that it should
be easier. See http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=126266 (and bugs
that were made its dupe and it spun off) about a long and winding road they
