Have you looked at the mod_rewrite docs? Yes, they are intimidating,
but they are better than blind guessing ;-)

An example would be:
RewriteRule .* - [T="text/html;charset=iso-8859-1"]

But I have my doubts that would actually work. I don't know what
mod_rewrite will do with the charset, and I don't know what would
happen in a proxy context.

I'll repeat that I think the simplest way to do this is a quick and
dirty apache module.
