1. The article [Q271583] discusses the following two problem which may occur if the Auto-Select option for encoding is not disabled. To do so, on the View menu, point to Encoding, and then click to clear the Auto-Select option.
a. When a Web page is viewed, a blank page may only be seen where the body of the document should display and only the Headers and Footers may be visible.
b. When an e-mail message in OE is printed, a blank page may print with the Header (To:,From:,Subject, and so on) and Footer information of the e-mail message only.
2. The article [Q202489] states that Global language detection occurs automatically in IE if the Auto-Detect option (on the View menu, point to Encoding) is selected. Since most Web pages contain information that tells the browser what language encoding (the language and the character set) to use -- corresponding language support files must be installed through the IE add-on page, or by clicking the encoding items in the Encoding menu -- the Help file indicates IE will automatically prompt a user to download files as needed). This does not ensure correct font usage however. If the page does not include that information (and you have enabled the Auto-Select feature), Internet Explorer can usually determine the appropriate language encoding to use. However, if the correct language setting cannot be determined automatically, manually set the known appropriate language.
3. The article [Q283807] discusses a problem concerning the display of a red "X" or a placeholder - blue triangle, and green circle if Encoding has been set to anything but Western European (Windows) -- something I have not experienced nor do I believe it, but anything is possible. However, if all else fails and this anomaly is experienced on your system, try anything.
4. Download and use "IEFix" - a general purpose fix for Internet Explorer (Win 98/ME/2000/XP):
a. Registers Urlmon.dll, Mshtml.dll, Actxprxy.dll, Oleaut32.dll, Shell32.dll, Shdocvw.dll, [Q281679].
b. Refreshes Internet Explorer using IE.INF method. Note:
"Unable to Install Internet Explorer 6 on Windows XP (Q304872)"
"How to Reinstall or Repair Internet Explorer and Outlook Express in Windows XP (Q318378)"
c. Initiates "SFC /Scannow" (Win2K&XP), [Q310747].
On opening a web page the encoding selects Western European (IS0) whether this is the appropriate selection or not. If not I have no graphics and have to change to Western European (Windows)but on selecting a link it then changes back again to (ISO)I have set it on Auto Select without any luck.Hope some one has the answer?
