Regarding different charsets in the mails that are converted into HTML.

As RFC2070 describes (1), one way of solving the character encoding issue, when it comes to non-iso8859-1 charsets, may be to include a tag like:

<META HTTP-EQUIV="Content-Type"

     CONTENT="text/html; charset=ISO-2022-JP">

"as early as possible within the HEAD of the document"

My question is, to all of you who do use other (non iso8859-1) charsets, how do you specify your charsets when YOU design web pages?

I'm no HTML guru, nor do I want to spend a lifetime on learning this with enough detail to implement a satisfactory method for hypermail. I trust you who do know help me out on this!
