Scary: ISO-8859-1 and 666

Google is supposed to be my friend, so I tried to find which value to MM_CHARSET is valid: either ISO_8859-1 or ISO-8859-1, and I got:
Results 1 - 10 of about 277 for MM_CHARSET ISO_8859-1. (0.27 seconds)
Results 1 - 10 of about 666 for MM_CHARSET ISO-8859-1. (0.11 seconds)
So ISO-8859-1 seems to be more appropriate, but, although I'm not very superstitious, now I don't know

Here's the link:

Nothing, I was just wondering about the meaning of the number (its prophesized ubiquity) and an international standard.

It was just a funny and strange coincidence 'cause I'm certainly not a christian.
I tried some basic ASCII numerology but it didn't show nothing.
Anyway, is there a serious numerologist?


Let's use another standard
