It is possible if its been malformed once (single step), multiple iterations can be impossible.
IIRC I think http://validator.w3.org/ can help ( Bundle::W3C::Validator )
As can these
HTML::Encoding - Determine the encoding of HTML/XML/XHTML documents
Encode::Detective - detect a data encoding
Encoding::FixLatin - takes mixed encoding input and produces UTF-8 output
Encode::DoubleEncodedUTF8 - Fix double encoded UTF-8 bytes to the correct one
But you ought to post some minimal html
I figure it ought to be as simple as parsing the file, decoding the entities, treating the string as octets and deciding what charset it is
Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
Titles consisting of a single word are discouraged, and in most cases are disallowed outright.
Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
Please read these before you post! —
Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags:
You may need to use entities for some characters, as follows. (Exception: Within code tags, you can put the characters literally.)
- a, abbr, b, big, blockquote, br, caption, center, col, colgroup, dd, del, div, dl, dt, em, font, h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, hr, i, ins, li, ol, p, pre, readmore, small, span, spoiler, strike, strong, sub, sup, table, tbody, td, tfoot, th, thead, tr, tt, u, ul, wbr
