Thanks David.
 Just to nitpick :-)

If there is a HEAD element, then the html output method should add a META
element immediately after the start-tag of the HEAD element specifying the
character encoding actually used. For example,

<META http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=EUC-JP">

So its added,.... but only if you include a <head> element in the output.
So yes, I was wasting my time... for ie 6, and since I added the <head>
