I do not actually want to change my charset. I was looking through the Twenty Twelve theme files, and in the header came across this.
<meta charset="<?php bloginfo( 'charset' ); ?>" />
This indicated to me that somewehre in WP I should be able to change some setting and actually change the default charset. Is this true? I assumed it would be under the reading settings in the admin panel, but did not see it there or anywhere else. Then again, I could have read over it.
If the charset can be changed, then where? What is WP's default charset? I would assume UTF-8.
This is strictly for my knowledge. I don't intend to change my charset. Just being curious.
Thanks for reading, and any help provided.
