Remove AddDefaultCharset from httpd.conf as shipped





------- Additional Comments From tex@i18nguy.com  2003-09-25 23:34 -------
The new default value causes corruption for people upgrading to the new 
version. The mislabeling of Windows-1252 as iso8859-1 can cause the euro symbol 
to be incorrect and result in erroneous financial transactions.
The misleading Apache documentation and the change to apply the default charset 
causes subtle differences which have significant impact. It can also cause non-
subtle differences. The fact that web standard calls for http charset to 
override the charset in the page, means that change will override even pages 
with self-documenting charset (ie pages that use the meta tag). The old 
behavior should be restored right away.
