    Default Encoding for IE 6

    Problem:
    When i visit my site using IE, the encoding is always set as Western European (Windows). However it is formated as Unicode UTF-8. I need to change my encoding everytime i visit the site to read the East Asian fonts correctly.

    Attempts to solve:
    I'm not too sure when my site is accessed from other computers, the encoding is auto set as Western European as well.

    Is there a script that sets the website encoding to be automatically in Unicode?

    Thanks.
