As specified, HTTP header information and “A META declaration with "http-
equiv" set to "Content-Type" and a value set for "charset"” take precedence
over this attribute and related attributes.

I remember Apache's default iso-8859-1 setting only too well.
Stumbled into that after changing my HTML pages to UTF-8
encoding and had to remove the default setting from Apache.
Nowadays one might standardize thoroughly on UTF-8 and set that
as the default, but I haven't done this. I rely on the charset
declaration in the meta tag.
assumed to be encoded in the same character set as the web page
itself, and that has been confirmed by the tests. Now I only
have to find why I'm having the problem on this particular
server at work.
