yes it is text/html

Yes: with a few exceptions all imode pages are in Japanese.
The encoding is "Shift-JIS".

Here are some META tags we use for imode sites we develop in our company:

<META http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=x-sjis">
<META name="CHTML" content="yes">   <---- used by imode search engines.

Note that a few more exceptions in addition to MARQUEE.

You can find a lot more information about imode in our imode-FAQ:
