I don't think so.
You can specify


but that only determines what kind of input the form should accept.
Unfortunately, nothing "forces" the browser to send a charset indication for what it sends.
It should always do that when there is a body, but most browsers don't.
It's a real pita.
Even for multipart/form-data, they don't provide it in the parts, usually.
This whole area is full of holes, which is why you may need things like URIencoding and 
the charset filter.
