Issues with charset encoding

Hi,

Using Alfresco 2.0 CE, Windows Server 2003, Tomcat, …

I have added HTML content with the following encoding:
<meta http-equiv=Content-Type content="text/html; charset=windows-1252">

When browsing this content, it always seem to open with "utf-8" encoding.  This causes some glitches in our pages.

Why is it opening with UTF-8? 
Looking at the Noderef, it appears that this is hadcoded somewhere:
"contentUrl=store://2007/5/22/8/7/613e8b3f-0865-11dc-8814-798d9ee261a8.bin|mimetype=text/html|size=5385|encoding=UTF-8|locale=en_US_"

This is an annoyance to the users who author, manage, and view these pages.

I'm not sure what I can do to resolve this.  Does anyone have some advice?

I considered saving all html files in UTF-8, but that is not easy to do with several non-technical authors who are used to creating HTML files from MS Office.

I considered modifying the browser settings, but apparently, it is behaving correctly (i.e. it consistently opens ALL html content with UTF-8 encoding).

Any suggestions?
