That's completely irrelevant... Bluesnews uses this

<html lang="en>

while the correct method is this

<html lang="en><meta charset="utf-8">
That is on my to-do list, but requires the underlying database to be converted to UTF8 as well, without changing how non-ASCII characters are represented in pages. That will take more time, after the ongoing responsive layout conversion of the forums.
This has been completed, database and HTML are now consistently using UTF8 (utf8_unicode_ci). No more Chinese characters.

If you still notice a wacky character encoding somewhere (news stories or forum posts), please let me know.

Edit: Hold your horses, already found some.
Edit 2: Found the cause and fixed it. Sweatdrop
