"Please note that you need trunk builds of Seamonkey or Firebird (Firebird 0.6 is OK) or else the browser will crash. We have a 'Web Services' component in Bugzilla under 'Browser' to file bugs against.

No. HTML provides access to Unicode via numeric character entities, so that glyphs from the Unicode character set can always be displayed. The misleadingly-named "charset" actually applies to the character *encoding*; that is, the algorithm used to transform the binary (or octal, or...) representation of the document into human-language characters. Since the numeric character entities are written in the document in ASCII characters (a subset of ISO-8859-1), there's no need to change the charset.
