Force Firefox to charset Big5-HKSCS

francis-9
The site http://www.mingpaonews.com/ is encoded in Big5-HKSCS, but the
website itself has in the HTML <meta http-equiv="Content-Type"
content="text/html; charset=big5">.

Therefore, Firefox will always incorrectly display the page as Big5. How do
I force it to use Big5-HKSCS?

Thanks a lot..

Try reporting this issue to the webmaster of that website.

You may also try enabling charset autodetection for chinese pages, using
view > charset menu. But contacting the webmaster is definately a better
way.

The Mozilla Taiwan folks made an extension that forces all Big5 pages to
Big5-HKSCS. It's available at http://moztw.org/dls/xpi/hkscs.xpi, and
see also https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=310299.
