    Gmail has an encoding problem. When I try to send an email via ASP:NET code, although I set message.IsBodyHtml = True
    message.BodyEncoding = System.Text.Encoding.GetEncoding(1254)

    Email body cannot be interpreted as html content. Also turkish characters are not displayed properly.

1. open email
2. choose the down-arrow next to "Reply" button

Popular encoding technique for binary data in E-mail massages

ASCII, most if not all e-mail is sent in plain text encoded in the ASCII standard unless the text is encrypted before hand by the writer of the e-mail and then the encrypted text is sent in ASCII encoding.

I hope this helps.

Thank you,

A 404 error is delivered by the web server when it can't find the page you're looking for. The only thing I can think of is if IE is asking for the page using text encoding that the server doesn't understand. Play with the properties in IE and change your default encoding to utf-8.

Jumbled text

You need to clean your Font Caches whenever and wherever you get garbled text ... I use a free utility called MainMenu which does this (a restart is required afterward) and many other maintenance tasks. 
Have you changed your Text Encoding settings, by chance, in either the View menu or Safari preferences?

Can't read code

hi, hope this helps:
If all the text appears garbled or as question marks, then Microsoft Word may not have accurately detected the encoding standard of text in the file. As a result, Word may have used the wrong encoding standard.
To have Word use an encoding standard you select:
  1. On the Tools menu, click Options, and then click the General tab.
  2. Select the Confirm conversion at Open check box.
  3. Close and then reopen the encoded file.
  4. In the Convert File dialog box, select Encoded Text.
  5. In the File Conversion dialog box, select Other encoding, and then select the encoding standard you want from the list.You can preview the text in the Preview area to check whether it makes sense in the encoding standard you selected.
If almost all the text looks the same (for example, all boxes or all dots), the required font may not be installed. You can install additional fonts by running the Microsoft Office Setup program again. On the Advanced Customization screen in the Setup program, expand Office Shared Features, and then expand International Support. Select the font you need, click the arrow next to your selection, and then click Run from My Computer.

Prints lines of garbage

This sounds like a driver issue, the wrong driver may be in use or may be corrupted. Go into Control Panel > Printers and delete the printer, then reinstall it using the drivers that came with the printer. Let me know how it works out!
