Actually, I believe the situation is closer to the reverse: I don't know 
any browsers which will switch character sets in the middle of a page, 
but both Netscape and Microsoft's browsers will be supporting Unicode in 
their next versions, based on what I've heard. Microsoft has already 
demonstrated this capability in theirs. Other browsers will be doing so 
too, I believe.

You are more likely to see browsers supporting Unicode before they 
support charset switching, so I'd recommend publishing your pages that 
way.
