encoding problem

    When I go online with IE8 the encoding is always Unicode or Western European
    and it works fine. On some html's that I've downloaded on my hard drive
    they open in IE8 with the html coding appearing rather than the
    pictures/text. When I click on View...Encoding, either Unicode or Western
    European is shown as active. But if I then left click on Unicode or Western
    European it now changes and appears like a normal page with out the coding.
    Any ideas?

    Maybe you forgot to name your file something ending in .html or .htm ?

    I found this problem was related to WLM and IE8 printing in html code rather
    then as viewed. I re-established Internet Explorer as my default browser
    and all these related problems disappeared.
