Sure.  Inline sheets have to be in the document encoding.  For external
ones, you have a number of options:

1)  Send the right encoding type in the content-type http header.
2)  Add the right @charset rule.
3)  Set the charset attribute on the <link> or <?xml-stylesheet?> that
    you use to import the sheet.
4)  Have your style sheet use the same encoding as the document, just
    like inline sheets.

That really does not follow (though again, I don't know much of the
specifics of what the character actually is, so this may well be a bug
in Opera/Mozilla).
