Only ASCII characters (with ord <= 0x7f) are represented in UTF-8 in the same way as in latin1 (as single bytes). By the way, there is a module IO::HTML which can be used to determine encoding of HTML files (seekable :raw streams only).

If you are positive that your web pages consist only of ASCII and valid UTF8, you can use HTML::TokeParser::->new( \ decode "UTF-8", $raw_html ); (or even utf8::decode($html); HTML::TokeParser::->new($html)), but it's going to complain and/or produce mojibake (or at least U+FFFD REPLACEMENT CHARACTERs) if (when?) the crawler encounters latin1/cp1252/koi8/another non-ASCII encoding.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
