HTML Standard attribute: accept-charset

[this page | pdf | back links]

The HTML accept-charset attribute specifies the character encodings used for submission of a <form> element.


Valid attribute values (when used with <form> elements) include:





Character encodings to be used when submitting the form


Common character_sets include:


-        UTF-8: Unicode

-        ISO-8859-1: character encoding for Latin alphabet


Multiple character_sets are acceptable and in HTML 5 need to be delimited (separated) by spaces. The default value is the reserved string UNKNOWN, which indicates that the encoding is the same as that for the document containing the <form> element.
