in thread UTF-8 and URL encoding

Right, but that's static HTML. Try this and look at what your browser thinks the encoding is:

#!/usr/local/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; use CGI qw(:standard); print header(); print <<HTML; <html> <head> <meta http-equiv="content-type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8"> </head> <body> <script> document.write( + "<br>"); </script> <form> <input type="hidden" name="test" value="&auml;"> <input type="submit"> </form> HTML print end_html();

Unless you tell it not to, will set the encoding to iso-8859-1 in the HTTP header. In this case the meta tag has no effect, at least in recent versions of IE and Mozilla.
