It is new for me that Zope treats "Accept-Charset" in any way (but I may
Usually, browsers respect the charset used when a form was delivered
and submit the form in the same charset.
As Zope has meanwhile forgotten which charset it used for the form
delivery, you must tell it about the encoding using
the magic conversion suffixes for request parameters.
If you have an "utf8" encoded value, you can append ":utf8"
to the parameter name and have it converted to a unicode
string. This, you can then transform into any encoding you like.
Beside "utf8", you can use any encoding registered with "codecs".
