May be your browser have differents assumptions on what charset is valid
for encoding multipart
form data... For instance, all modern browsers allow customizing
charsets based on the user's locale.

Lastly this behavior is well-defined in RFC 2616, as the
"Accept-Charset" HTTP header:

   "The Accept-Charset request-header field can be used to indicate what
   character sets are acceptable for the response. This field allows
   clients capable of understanding more comprehensive or special-
   purpose character sets to signal that capability to a server which is
   capable of representing documents in those character sets."

just my 2 cents while watching a boring hockey game... :-)
