HTML DOM characterSet Property
Display the character encoding for this document:
Definition and Usage
The characterSet property returns the character encoding for the document.
The character encoding is the character set used for rendering the document, which may differ from the encoding specified by the page (the user can override the encoding).
The characterSet property returns the character encoding at the time of parsing, and will return null if the document is created in memory.
For more information on character sets, visit our HTML Charsets Reference.
Note: This property is an alias of document.inputEncoding and document.charset.
The numbers in the table specify the first browser version that fully supports the property.
|Return Value:||A String, representing the document's character encoding|
|DOM Version||Core Level 3 Document Object|
