Yes, we used this. But http://de.selfhtml.org/html/kopfdaten/meta.htm#zeichenkodierung (unfortunally
only in german) says
"Im Konfliktfall, also wenn der Webserver im HTTP-Header eine hiervon abweichende Angabe sendet,
wird üblicherweise die Angabe des HTTP-Headers verwendet.", which means that, if you have
the META in the HTML-file and also the content-type in the HTTP-Header, mostly the HTTP-Header
"wins".
