Hello, I'm using mongrel_rails 0.3.12.4 to start a radiantcms site (http://radiantcms.org/) and all the pages/snippets/layouts I'm using are in utf-8. By default, mongrel sends "text/html" as content-type w/o any indication of charset and browsers thus assume iso-8859-1 (as they should). I've tried to follow the HOWTO at http://mongrel.rubyforge.org/docs/howto.html but adding a mime.yml with --- .html: text/html; charset=utf-8 doesn't seem to work. Any idea? Thanks.

Does it work with Webrick? If it is working with Webrick but not with Mongrel then try adding: <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8"/> to your page header. For reasons I haven't bothered thinking about this worked for me. Maybe it is more widely useful? Don't know (I find thinking about character encoding gives me a really bad headache...)

If you can, use the pre-release which fixes this and many other problems: gem install mongrel --source=http://mongrel.rubyforge.org/releases/ Then let me know if it's still broken.
