I confirm that.

Maybe the document
.NET Framework General Reference
globalization Element (ASP.NET Settings Schema)
http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hy4kkhe0.aspx

helps you to configure your webserver correctly.


Concerning your desire to individually configure the encoding instead  
of rely on the default encoding, the following section of http:// 
msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hy4kkhe0.aspx may be of interest  
for you:

<cite>
responseEncoding

Optional attribute.

Specifies the content encoding of responses.

The default encoding is UTF-8, which is specified in the  
globalization section in the Machine.config file that was created  
when the .NET Framework was installed. If response encoding is not  
specified in a Machine.config or Web.config file, encoding defaults  
to the Regional Options locale setting for the computer.

In single-server applications, this attribute and the  
responseEncoding attribute should be the same. For the less common  
case (multiple-server applications where the default server encodings  
are different), you can vary the request and response encoding by  
using local Web.config files.
</cite>

It seems, that IIS/ASP.Net gives you the ability to use individual  
Web.config files to overwrite the default response encoding.

Full ACK.



Hope, this helps.
