Maybe Aidan can explain what looks like a Latin-1 character is being
stuffed into a jit-ucs charset.
This is what happens when Latin-1 is decoded as UTF-8, since I changed the
UTF-8 coding systems to avoid transforming every octet that is not valid
UTF-8 to tilde. Basically, babel (or more probably, the URL-retrieval code)
isn’t looking at the MIME information about what coding system the data is
in at all.

described as “an unplanned and accidental public health triumph”, iodine was
added to cattle feed to improve milk production in the 1930s.’
