The charSet variable is used by Adobe to convert incoming data into UTF-8 for storage and reporting by Analytics. If your site uses a charSet other than UTF-8, this variable allows your data to be properly encoded by Adobe. This variable can be set on a page-by-page basis if your site uses different encodings on different pages.
