Issues with IIS 4 and IIS 5

The internal engine of IIS 4 and IIS 5 is based on Windows code pages, so any items that require processing by the engine will use ACP as a base. As a result, for a Web page to display values as UTF-8, those values will have to be converted from ACP to UTF-8, resulting in some character degradation. Table 15-4 shows the values that are affected.
