<h3>Summary</h3>

    <p><code class="module"><a href="../mod/mod_charset_lite.html">mod_charset_lite</a></code> allows the server to change
    the character set of responses before sending them to the client.
    In an EBCDIC environment, Apache always translates HTTP protocol
    content (e.g. response headers) from the code page of the Apache
    process locale to ISO-8859-1, but not the body of responses.  In
    any environment, <code class="module"><a href="../mod/mod_charset_lite.html">mod_charset_lite</a></code> can be used to
    specify that response bodies should be translated.  For example,
    if files are stored in EBCDIC, then
    <code class="module"><a href="../mod/mod_charset_lite.html">mod_charset_lite</a></code> can translate them to
    ISO-8859-1 before sending them to the client.</p>

    <p>This module provides a small subset of configuration
    mechanisms implemented by Russian Apache and its associated
    <code>mod_charset</code>.</p>

<h2><a name="problems" id="problems">Common Problems</a></h2>

    <h3>Invalid character set names</h3>

      <p>The character set name parameters of <code class="directive"><a href="#charsetsourceenc">CharsetSourceEnc</a></code> and
      <code class="directive"><a href="#charsetdefault">CharsetDefault</a></code>
      must be acceptable to the translation mechanism used by
      <a class="glossarylink" href="../glossary.html#apr" title="see glossary">APR</a> on the system where
      <code class="module"><a href="../mod/mod_charset_lite.html">mod_charset_lite</a></code> is deployed.  These character
      set names are not standardized and are usually not the same as
      the corresponding values used in http headers.  Currently, APR
      can only use iconv(3), so you can easily test your character set
      names using the iconv(1) program, as follows:</p>

      <div class="example"><p><code>
        iconv -f charsetsourceenc-value -t charsetdefault-value
      </code></p></div>
    

    <h3>Mismatch between character set of content and translation
    rules</h3>

      <p>If the translation rules don't make sense for the content,
      translation can fail in various ways, including:</p>

      <ul>
      <li>The translation mechanism may return a bad return code,
      and the connection will be aborted.</li>

      <li>The translation mechanism may silently place special
      characters (e.g., question marks) in the output buffer when
      it cannot translate the input buffer.</li>
      </ul>

    <p>The <code class="directive">CharsetDefault</code> directive specifies the
    charset that content in the associated container should be
    translated to.</p>

    <p>The value of the <var>charset</var> argument must be accepted
    as a valid character set name by the character set support in
    <a class="glossarylink" href="../glossary.html#apr" title="see glossary">APR</a>. Generally, this means that it must be
    supported by iconv.</p>

      <dd>The <code>ImplicitAdd</code> keyword specifies that
      <code class="module"><a href="../mod/mod_charset_lite.html">mod_charset_lite</a></code> should implicitly insert its
      filter when the configuration specifies that the character
      set of content should be translated. If the filter chain is
      explicitly configured using the <code class="directive"><a href="../mod/mod_mime.html#addoutputfilter">AddOutputFilter</a></code> directive, <code>NoImplicitAdd</code>
      should be specified so that <code class="module"><a href="../mod/mod_charset_lite.html">mod_charset_lite</a></code>
      doesn't add its filter.</dd>

      <dt><code>TranslateAllMimeTypes | NoTranslateAllMimeTypes</code></dt>
      <dd>Normally, <code class="module"><a href="../mod/mod_charset_lite.html">mod_charset_lite</a></code> will only perform
      translation on a small subset of possible mimetypes.  When the
      <code>TranslateAllMimeTypes</code> keyword is specified for a given

      mimetype.</dd>
