LinuxFocus.org Mirror sites

Use one of our mirrors in a location close to you!

Servers marked as "[charset: full international support]" support a "charset" dependent Content-Type and can be used to read text with non Latin 1 encoding. These servers should be preferred for languages such as Chinese, Russian, Arabic, etc... This is because many browsers have problems to correctly identify the character encoding and use only the right encoding if it is specified by the webserver.

All this is not applicable to languages based on iso-8859-1 character encoding such as English, German, French, Spanish,...
