Our web server provides documents in hebrew.
We were using the meta tag in the html to change the charset to
iso-8859-8 . Though, it appears that Netscape browsers 3.x and 4.x have
a bug which causes documents, in which a switch in the charset was made
using the meta tag, to be redrawn . It looks like the page reloads
After looking into the problem we though that if we cane change the
header Content-Type which the server sends to include charset iso-8859-8
it will not have to redraw the page. Indeed, on CGI scripts, in which we
can set the headers, this solution worked.
My question is how can I set the default header that Apache sends to be
Content-Type: text/html; charset=iso-8859-8 Instead of the usual one ?
