Chris, I have some instructions for Apache on a web page:
http://www.i18nguy.com/markup/serving.html

If you follow the instructions for creating a .htaccess file in the
directory with your web pages, you will get the right http charset
without disturbing your web admin.

(Assuming typical server admin configuration...)

The examples are for Unicode UTF-8, but you can use other charsets if
needed.
