iso-8859-1 vs ms windows latin-1

just as a relief from the near constant news and grief about the tsunami in this part of the world, here's some of this blog's normally technical content.

while digging around on jguru i stumbled on this quite old, but still relevant, comparison between the iso-8859-1 and ms windows latin-1 charsets. if you scroll down a bit you will see a table of entities with the "extra" ms windows latin-1 highlighted in green. now you know why i'm always harping on about non-unicode encoding--Just Use Unicode.
