I don't reallly understand charsets, but I see that you are supposed
to declare one. I am putting a paper up in HTML. It uses some special
characters, like umlauts and diacriticals. The biggest problem I've
had with it is creating characters with lines over them (macrons), as
is done to indicate a long vowel sound, for example. There is no way
to do this using my word processor. Is there a way to do it in an HTML
document? Which charset should I declare in the <meta> tag?
