AddDefaultCharset utf-8

11 November 2015, 16:49

in .htaccess "AddDefaultCharset utf-8" can be set to include the charset- info in the http-header. I know in html docs it can also be included in the meta tag in the <head>....

But specifying a character set in a meta tag disables the lookahead downloader in IE8. To improve resource download parallelization, moving the character set to the HTTP Content-Type response header is recommended.

I'd like to have that functionality in hiawatha or is there a workaround?

UTF-8 is considered to be the default character set in HTML, so nothing is required for that. If you want to set HTTP headers, use the CustomHeader option.
