I think the magic part is less of a problem than the magic sometimes
not working part. You’ll also need to convert to Unicode for pages in
other encodings (three others used in Japan), while keeping in mind
encodings are sometimes not declared.

If you need any help for Japanese let me know

PS speaking of encodings I recently saw a Japanese page using two
different encodings (second via iframe), neither of which were
declared. Mojibake disaster! :O
