Currently this option has no effect. Input generally has to be latin-1
only, though the Debian extended html2ext interprets a <meta>
charset directive in the HTML header.
Various & style named or numbered entities are recognised and result in suitable output. The suggestion would be entitized input for maximum portability among html2text versions.
If set to ascii or ANSI_X3.4-1968 (both case-insensitive) the
html2text -ascii option is used, when available (html2text 1.3.2 from
If set to UTF-8 then Debian extension -utf8 option is used (circa 2009).
Apart from this theres no control over the output charset.
