NDFAQs claims charset=ISO-8859-1, but is UTF-8
For example, the quote marks around efficiency are encoded as e2 80 9c and e2 80 9d, which are valid UTF-8 for U+201C and U+201D. But 0x80 isn't even a valid ISO-8859 character.

(Interestingly, the web server appears to not like wget, and returns 404 to a request to "wget", but happily serves it up if I tell wget to not send a User-Agent string.)

That happened when we copied and pasted content out of the original backend and into the new one. I wish I could remember why, but there are some reviews that have that mistake as well. :(

I would say the quote issue probably happened when we made the recent server change. I've found in the past, that migrating from one to another occasionally gives us this result. What's odd is why it only does it on certain ones and not others. We've seen it a lot when we copy over some of the tables in the past as well.

On the charset side of it. I don't really have an answer for why its giving you ISO-8859-1. I keep getting closer and closer to having someone recode the front end completely so that we can get away from the open source CMS that I originally started with.
