AFAICT Apache does not add any charset for .utf-16 (it would be .utf16
by the way, corresponding to .utf8 etc.) so you would need to have a

  AllowOverride +FileInfo

for the relevant directory and MultiViews must be activated in oder to
work, i.e. another

  AllowOverride +FileInfo +Options


  Options +MultiViews

If you have FileInfo override privileges, you can just do

  Addtype text/css;charset=utf-16

with no need to negotiate the content. Allowing FileInfo override is a
potential security hole, so he may indeed have no chance to change the
charset parameter for text/css documents. However, rules for text/css
and text/xml with no explicit charset parameter are different... I was
just going to discuss this issue.

Please don't reply to list, Apache's configuration details are offtopic
