I'm working on and English/French site. The French data is in the
windows-1251 character set.

My main application uses:

<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html;

So I am also adding the appropriate HTTP response header in my AJAX
response. If I go to the AJAX URL directly, the encoding comes out
fine, but if I call it via Prototype the accented French characters
come out as the <?> diamond in Firefox.

I've tried adding encoding:'windows-1252' in my request, but I'm still
getting the same result.

Does Prototype need some other configuration to treat the response as
something other than UTF-8?
