      Description

      When viewing a bitstream in the browser the file is encoded as ISO-8859 instead of UTF-8.

      This can be tested by uploading a HTML file that has a few special characters as a bitstream. View this HTML file in the browser by clicking on it on the item page.

      A few years ago this issue was already raised and a fix was proposed:
