Right.  Yesterday, I configured text/xml;charset=utf-16, and then 
tested text/xml without the charset paramter.  It is now back to the 
original correct header.

bash-2.05$ java showCharset http://www.asahi-net.or.jp/~eb2m-mrt/jisho.css
Opening connection to http://www.asahi-net.or.jp/~eb2m-mrt/jisho.xml...
Content type: text/xml; charset=utf-16

Unfortunately, my ISP does not allow me to specify the charset paramter 
for CSS.  I will speak with them.
