I wonder if we usually use Iconv to translate to various encoding? For example: Iconv.conv("UTF-8", "BIG-5", content) or Iconv.conv("UTF-8", "CP950", content) or do we usually use other packages? One reason is that BIG-5 can cause an exception while CP950 won't on some content, and both of them are supposed to be Tradtional Chinese encoding. by the way, iconv -l on the shell will give names of all encodings. Are they supposed to be usable by the ruby Iconv library?
