The accept-charset attribute is used to define the character encoding and is used for form submission. The default value of the accept-charset attribute is “UNKNOWN” string which indicates the encoding equals to the encoding of the document containing the <form> element. 

Syntax:

<form accept-charset = "character_set">

Attribute Value: The attribute value contains the list-separated value of one or more encoding attributes. The common value of the encoding attribute is: UTF-8, ISO-8859-1. This attribute is always associated with the form element only. 

Example: 

html

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
 
<head>
    <title>accept-charset attribute</title>
    <style>
        h1 {
            color:green;
        }
        body {
            text-align:center;
        }
    </style>
</head>
 
<body>
    <h1>GeeksforGeeks</h1>
