where have all my websites gone?

I woke up this morning, in the usual way.. but this one is very different. All my websites are gone. Just gone gone. I’m on tech support and they’re investigating. This is not good.

Web hosting used to be a lot more lenient and allowed different language encoding on a per page basis, by using a META tag in the <HEAD> section like:

<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=big5"> 

But recently discovered that my web hosting server (and perhaps many others) have a server-defined language character set encoding, and the META tag is ignored, so to speak.
