I think the question is whether the server encoding or English are
likely to be better for the average client.  My bet is that the server
encoding is more likely correct.

However, you are right that English/ASCII at least will always be
viewable, while there are many server/client combinations that will
produce unreadable characters.

I would be interested to hear other people's experience with this.
