You can do "better": use the HTTP Content-Type header's charset parameter. I don't
know which server you are using, but you probably need to "tell" it to use the
right Content-Type header.

Netscape doesn't do anything with Content-Language (yet).

Are you sure that the redraw is due to the charset? Have you tried it with and
without the charset?
