No. The right one is "ISO-2022-JP", although the actual use of escape sequences in this encoding is not completely compliant to ISO 2022 :-). Also, in contrast to internet mail, where ISO-2022-JP is the only accepted encoding, web pages frequently are in Shift-JIS or Japanese EUC (sorry, don't know the correct identifiers for those), and so should be appropriately labelled.
