The Wiki pages are served with a "Content-Type: text/html;charset=utf-8"
header, so I don't think the lack of a meta tag will be a problem.

These two might be a problem. The shipit software is our own but the
archives are generated using standard pipermail. It might be possible to
make pipermail use UTF-8 pages.

This address redirects me to http://www.ubuntulinux.org/.

This site is outside of our control; you should contact the maintainers
of the site about encoding problems.

I don't use digests myself. If you are having problems, it may be due to
a bug in Mailman.

Thanks for spending time investigating this: I fully advocate the use of
Unicode and UTF-8 and agree that we should be using it wherever we can.
