comment How can I identify and install missing character sets for browsers?
I see your point about this being an X-Y problem. As an experienced user, would you suggest I edit my question to remove the confusion? The problem is that it might make JK's answer seem a bit odd if I remove references to character sets.

comment How can I identify and install missing character sets for browsers?
Thanks. By way of example, in Firefox setting the encoding to "Western" (had defaulted to "Unicode") solved the problem. You are probably right then in that case that the way to resolve it is to contact the owner of the site.

Thanks for the helpful answer. Google is of course good for everything, if you know what it is you are searching for :-) Anyway, hopefully this Q&A will come up in Google for the next person with this problem.

comment Installing extra memory seems to make Windows more sluggish
@50-3: I like your explanation about Windows not being able to access certain areas of RAM it believes is available. It would probably account for the slowness, as the OS probably has to keep retrying, getting errors in the process. It sounds like a very probable theory.

comment Installing extra memory seems to make Windows more sluggish
Well, going down to 8GB memory has dramatically improved the performance of my machine, so even though I don't know the detail, this answer is good enough for me. Thanks!
