Specifying the Character Set
To render a numeric character reference correctly, a browser must apply the correct char-
acter set to a Web page. This information is typically sent by the Web server as it transfers
an HTML page to a browser. However, to be doubly certain that browsers employ the
correct character set, you can specify the character set within the head element of your
HTML document. For HTML 4.01 and XHTML, you add the meta element
<meta http-equiv=”Content-Type”
content=”text/html; charset= character_set ” />
