CSS @charset Rule

charset: Set the encoding of the style sheet to Unicode UTF-8

@charset “UTF-8”;

Definition and Usage

The @charset rule specifies the character encoding used in the style sheet.

The @charset rule must be the first element in the style sheet and not be preceded by any character. If several @charset rules are defined, only the first one is used. The @charset rule cannot be used inside a style attribute (on an HTML element), or inside the <style> element where the character set of the HTML page is relevant.
