Are you sure it's a HTTP header issue with Apache? Did you try
changing the encoding at the client (browser) manually?

The meta tag is embedded in a HTML page, so it can't influence the
HTTP headers, AFAIK. So, it's either something wrong at the client, or
with your Apache config.

See AddCharset and AddDefaultCharset in the Apache docs for some
