If you want ISO-8859-1, then you'll want to write a custom wrapper
styelsheet. It'd be pretty simple:

<?xml version='1.0'?>
<xsl:stylesheet version='1.0'

  <xsl:import href="/path/to/xhtml/docbook.xsl"/>

  <xsl:output method="xml"
     doctype-public="-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN"


I don't know about getting a browser to interpret an file:// URL as
UTF-8, but if you're running something like Apache, then you can
specify a default charset:

  AddDefaultCharset UTF-8

In the <xsl:output> tag above, change the indent attribute to "yes."

You'll want to override the default templates or params, putting your
versions into the stylesheet above.

Whoops, work calling, can't get to the rest of your questions right
now. Sorry. :-/
