BYOND Version:N/A (Website Bug)
Operating System:Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
Web Browser:Firefox 8.0
Applies to:Website
Status: Open

Issue hasn't been assigned a status value.
Descriptive Problem Summary:
Having HTML files in Manage Site - Files seems to always open in unicode, even if the file specifically states to use an alternative. This results in the £ sign being incapable of display, however works throughout most of the rest of the BYOND site, and even in BYOND program itself.

Numbered Steps to Reproduce Problem:
View a web page with a £ sign from members filespace. (Example: http://files.byondhome.com/Acebloke/pound.htm )

Same applies in both Firefox and IE current versions.

Code Snippet (if applicable) to Reproduce Problem:
See source for above file. Attempted various ways.

Expected Results:
£
Actual Results:

Does the problem occur:
Every time

When does the problem NOT occur?
Locally, including in-game, seemingly every other place in BYOND website outside of files.byondhome.com

Workarounds:

None known.

I presume this is something to do with a server overiding the files within it, although I don't really understand meta data too well. The rest of the site seems to auto-detect or have that as standard. My own computer happily auto-detects locally, but decides to run in UTC-8 when it gets uploaded to BYOND.
