In response to Martin on using labels:

Thinking about it, I see that a client needs to have the information
about conversion from the charset of the encoded HTML document
to display the document, so the conversion intelligense must already
be with the browser. So there is no need to also require the
server to have conversion software. Thus I agree that only
having one charset (I prefer UTF-8) for the URL is advisable,
and that labelling with a charset should not be done.
