      > Hi Markus,
      > My guess is that the ~32,000 characters of mostly ascii-ish <script/> are what is actually being used for encoding detection. The HTMLEncodingDetector only looks in the first 8,192 characters, and the other encoding detectors have similar (but longer?) restrictions.
      > At some point, I had a dev version of a stripper that removed contents of <script/> and <style/> before trying to detect the encoding[0]...perhaps it is time to resurrect that code and integrate it?
      > Or, given that HTML has been, um, blossoming, perhaps, more simply, we should expand how far we look into a stream for detection?

      > Hello,
      > We have a problem with Tika, encoding and pages on this website: https://www.aarstiderne.com/frugt-groent-og-mere/mixkasser
      > Using Nutch and Tika 1.12, but also using Tika 1.16, we found out that the regular HTML parser does a fine job, but our TikaParser has a tough job dealing with this HTML. For some reason Tika thinks Content-Encoding=windows-1252 is what this webpage says it is, instead the page identifies itself properly as UTF-8.
      > Of all websites we index, this is so far the only one giving trouble indexing accents, getting fÃ¥ instead of a regular få.
