[Bug 259650] Re: firefox3 displays cyrillic characters instead of latin

Thanks for directing me to #228988 as it seem somewhat related.
However, what I can understand from that bug report, the pages that were displayed wrong, lacked a proper set of character encoding. The page giving me problem (http://www.phpundercontrol.org/about.html) does indeed set char encoding using a meta tag:

<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />

Using the steps above I can reproduce the error, but I cannot get the
page to show correctly by clearing history and choosing iso8859-1 in a
new window.

As for #228988, it doesn't seem to have a happy ending to say the least :)
Is this rather an issue to report directly upstream to the firefox team at mozilla?
