Re: RE: Encoding charset of HTTP Basic Authentication
>A lot of this stuff was still relatively new, and only a few people were thinking of non-European or non-Latin-alphabet languages. I don't think that's true. Vast numbers of people were thinking about them, but they weren't in California, and no-one in California took any notice. Before the internet, the level of ignorance in the US about anything happening outside the US was staggering. The amazing thing is that HTTP/HTML ever made it across from Switzerland. (Just consider: why did Microsoft, for many years, refer to Latin-1 as "ANSI"? Answer: because that's what it said on the cover of the copy that they acquired. ISO standards in those days were published in the US with an ANSI rebranding. Microsoft were not only ignorant that it was an international standard rather than an American one, they were also clearly unaware that there were zillions of other ANSI standards.)
