Can anybody tell me how stream titles, which are non-ASCII, are sent?

For example, at ShoutCast.com, there are Asian and European streams 
that send encoded strings.  However, I can't see how to detect what 
type of encoding they are using.  e.g. UTF8, ISOLatin1, etc.  If I 
could work out the encoding, then I can display the names properly.

Any differences between how IceCast and Shoutcast handle this?  Any
