The charset is *not* determined (guessed) from the URL string, be it hex 
encoded or not. We take the locale setup as default, but it can be overridden 
by --local-encoding. Right now, Wget does not have the ability to have 
different encodings for file input (--input-file) and input via STDIN (when 
used at the same time). But that is another issue...
