I thnik we are sending out iso-8859-1 pages currently.

Excpet for to the mac where we are sending out MacRoman encoded pages.

I am not certain what I want in the future, as this is mainly a
concern right now to tth delivered content.

I will hopefully be able to do some hacking on the tth stuff soon.
