Thanks Jim.  I ran into this problem a few months ago, but I had no real
need to access the page, and the user was using IE which just "figures it
out".[1]  But, since you made the fix so accessible, I thought it would be 
poor form not to actually implement it.


[1]   Meaning IE cavalierly discards all information provided about the
charset if it feels like it.
