How do I change the default character set for HTML?
In an .htaccess file placed in the directory you want to have the character set changed on, include the following lines:
AddDefaultCharset ? # Or AddType 'text/html; charset=?' html DefaultLanguage en-US
Replace the "?" with the character set required for your site, such as UTF-8.
Note: Cloud Sites has a default character set of UTF-8 if otherwise not specified in .htaccess
