This should cover response to Bill Stoddard's post as well.

I suppose I could use a custom error page and set the tags in there, however i
simply use:
ErrorDocument "404

I guess I'll have to switch to using files that have "4/5xx" in them with the
charset defined..  which is fine. Was just thinking since the AddDefaultchar
documentation says it overrides any META tags, i just figured it meant it
would override anything.

I can't really go over the reasons for wanting to change it, as its an
internal thing here.. I just do as I'm told :P

Thanks for the repsonses.
