    Hello all,

    I recently struggled with my website (written in HTML5) for a number of hours until I found out that HTML 5 requires the following code in order to display anything:

    HTML:
    <meta charset="utf-8" />
    Pretty weird, huh? I guess that's just the price we pay for an awesome, standards-compliant language.

    Just thought I'd warn everyone so they don't run into this themselves.
