Thanks, this is indeed a common problem, not only for czech pages. Not every
translator prefers the encoding used by the website language team. I really
suggest that all language teams search for such bogus strings.

German language uses only the following 8bit characters:
ä, ö, ü (and capitals), ß

I check from time to time that these are used in latin1 encoding only and
fixed errors already a few times (but not very often).

A similar situation exists when latin1 characters (mostly in names) from
Debian Weekly News are directly used (copy-and-paste) without noticing
that it may be necessary to adapt these (such as in Japanese texts, ...).
