Browsers need you to tell them the encoding of your documents.
Use addcharset/family directives.

So long as you tell browsers the charset the encoding of your documents,
what they do with it is up to them.  If you get problems from browser
bugs, the workaround is probably to avoid using characters that give
rise to the problems.
