... at least, as seen on the SETI messages boards.

See, for example,

Yes, there I constantly have to adjust to unicode (utf-8) to see my greetings correct.

Ah, that's it. I saw similar corruption on SETI Beta a while ago, now corrected.

So, testing today:

SETI Beta renders correctly in ISO, fails in UTF-8
SETI Main fails to render in ISO, shows correctly in UTF-8
BOINC Dev fails to render in ISO, shows correctly in UTF-8 (but switches IE7 automatically to UTF-8)

Any other project switched to the new style-sheets yet?

Einstein works fine with my IE6, but they don't seem to have changed the layout, yet.
