Subject: Chunked HTML in UTF-8 (meta content-type tag)

Greetings All,

My preemptive apologies if this question has already been worked out to 
everyone's satisfaction.

I'm having trouble getting chunked HTML output consistently recognized 
as UTF-8. I'm generating multiple XHTML using xhtml/profile-chunk.xsl as 
a basis. I end up with HTML pages with:

	<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

at the beginning, but with no:

<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8">

or similar in the HTML header.

Depending on whether I use boa, apache1, apache2 as a web server, and 
Firefox, Internet Explorer, or Opera to view the same pages, I see them 
as UTF-8 or ISO-8859-1. I haven't built the, let's call it, 
"compatibility matrix" because frankly I'm hoping that there is an easy 

Speaking of which, I've tried using "chunker.output.encoding" in the 
stylesheet to no avail. The following:

<xsl:param name="chunker.output.encoding">utf-8</xsl:param>

no longer seems to generate the above "meta" HTML tag.

Does anyone have any experience generating UTF-8 XHTML that can be 
consistently rendered in both Firefox and IE?
