AFAIK, that's the kosher way to do it. I do it with "chars=x-euc-jp"
inside a <meta ... >

At present I think you need to do it by coding your Japanese as
iso-2022-jp. For the two-byte codes such as EUC and SJIS, the code ranges
collide with those in iso-8859-1, so the normal way of doing "Latin"
diacritic marks is not available.

Unicode will, of course, fix all this.
