The <meta> stuff is completely between you and the browser.  Apache
has nothing to do with it.  But Apache does send real HTTP
Content-Type headers that will override any <meta> tag in your
document.  You probably want to look at the AddDefaultCharset
directive in httpd.conf.  Commenting it out may solve your problem.
