The reason that I know it's not utf-8 is by a few reasons,
1) wget -S says it's Content-Type: text/html; charset=ISO-8859-1
2) when I try the HTML validator on it tells me that it's
3) Internet Explorer and Firefox both have ISO-8859-1 selected 
4) Firefox's Page Info shows it as ISO-8859-1

Is there a way to remove all other content types and only output utf-8
or would I have to hack the source for that to work? If so could you
point me to the place in the source to modify? 

I'm using mod_perl for almost everything but the few pages that I'm not
have a .ad2 extension. I added "AddCharset UTF-8 .ad2" but that doesn't
see to change anything. 

Any other ideas?
