Many people assume they have no control over the HTTP headers, but in 
reality, it's often just a matter of not knowing how to do so.  If your 
host is using Apache, you can very likely change the headers using a 
.htaccess file.  Look up AddDefaultCharset or AddCharset directives in 
the Apache docs.  If you're not using Apache, look up the documentation 
for whatever server you are using.

If your using a server side scripting language like ASP, PHP, JSP, etc. 
then such languages include a way to set appropriate headers.

If you really have no control over the HTTP headers, than complain to 
your host and/or switch to a better provider.  In any case, this thread 
is getting way off-topic for www-html.
