Is this correct?
You can send Unicode directly to the Web browser. Just make sure you
announce in the HTTP header that the body is encoded in UTF-8.
If the locale fonts are not already in Unicode (they are today
on all Windows and Mac machines, Linux and other Unices are following
in the most recent versions), then it is the duty of the web browser
to convert from Unicode into the local font encoding.
