This might have to do with the pages and/or mails having an untrue character set identification. For example eBay's automated messages all identify themselves as "us-ascii", but many contain cent signs or acute accents from the Latin-1 character set which are not in ASCII. This is more of an evangelism issue than a bug; encourage the originator of the pages or mails not to use composing tools that create erroneous character set identifications, or that rely on a certain default setting that not everybody uses. If every page on the web identified the character set correctly, many of these problems would not exist.
