Is character set ISO-8859-1 = Windows-1252 ?

No. But at least for Firefox: Yes. You can change you character encoding under “View – Character Encoding – Western (ISO-8859-1)“. But hexadecimal 80 won’t be the control sequence PADDING CHARACTER (PAD). It will be the euro symbol €. Control characters have no meaning in HTML.

I have no clue why they don’t indicate Windows-1252. 😉
