Very little has changed in this area between 1.3 and 2.0.

In the typical situation, apache influences character sets in only a very
limitted way: by settin the charset in the Content-Type http header.  So
check the AddCharset and AddDefaultCharset directives in httpd.conf.

Also, if you can post a public URL with the problem here, some people may
be able to help diagnose the problem.
