Displaying Foreign and Special Characters
This article aids in implementing to display a text on page in a language other than the primary one used by your site.
This can be done by specifying the <meta> tag right after the <head> tag to declare a character set on all the pages of the website.
A web designer can also override or modify a server’s default character set in .htaccess file to specify a different character set for a particular file.

It is by default the web site has a primary language be it En. Gr. or Jp. For a particular audience you can create a page in relevant laguage and display text successfully to users who understand that language. It is the character set enabled behind the scene that are making this possible.
When you use a similar attribute is a web page design like rendering “About Us” page in Russian, English and Japanese on the same website. This is meant for audience with different linguistic backgrounds then the Charset has to be defined for that particular page in advance during web design and development process.
If a website designer wishes to use different laguages on the same pages then unicode character set should be used.
