[R] http://www.r-project.org/contributors.html: display problem, because no character set is defined

Dear R webmasters,

my browser defaults to the charset UTF-8 and since [1] seems to be
encoded in ISO-8859-1 the umlauts are not displayed correctly. It would
be great if the encoding could be added to the header [2]. (Or the page
converted to UTF-8 and the problem would be solved for me. ;-) )

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


        <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=ISO-8859-1">
