On django/utils/ the DEFAULT_MIME_TYPE is just "text/html". That means the web browsers sometimes show "weird things" when one uses non-ascii characters on the templates (example: customize base_site.html adding some utf-8 characters and open the http://.../admin/ login page). It would be better to define a default charset, changing that to DEFAULT_MIME_TYPE = 'text/html; charset=utf-8' (the same mimetype used on the admin interface).
