Another solution to this (assuming you're serving the files using
apache httpd) is to use a .htaccess file to tell the webserver what
encoding you're using:

AddDefaultCharset UTF-8

That line (with a newline) in a file called ".htaccess" in the root
of you generated content will tell httpd that the files are UTF-8.
This assumes that httpd is configured to permit delegation of
access. It will enable you to change the encoding used by the http
without regenerating your content.
