Since every relevant combination of available operating systems,
browsers and text editors has been supporting the Unicode encodings
for a decade or so, I see no reason not to use it. Personally I treat
every encoding that is unable to encode the whole Unicode scalar value
space as a legacy encoding, though I admit that some of these "legacy"
encodings (like ASCII and the ISO-8859 family) are still quite
relevant. HTTP servers should in any case send the correct Content-
Type header, and BOMs might be used to identify plain text files.
