"For example, when your grandma places an order for a new book from http://www.barnesandnoble.com/, she is unaware that her Macintosh computer stores its characters differently than the new Windows 2000 Web server running www.barnesandnoble.com. As she enters your Swedish home address in the ship-to field of the Internet order form, she believes the Internet will correctly deliver the character å (byte value 140 on her Macintosh), unaware that her message will be received and processed by computers that translate byte value 140 as the letter Œ."
