[Koha] Encoding and Character Sets in Koha

Hi Narcis,

000 should, if properly configured, auto-fill with a good value when 
clicking into the input field or when trying to save the record for the 
first time.

- Is there a plugin icon next to the 000 field?
- Is it mandatory?
- Does it populate when you click it?

If the LDR is there, new records should display ok without need to edit 
them again.
