Well -- now I do this:

my $charset='ISO-8859-8';

my $q = CGI->new;
# some code goes here
				-http_equiv =>'Content-Type',
				-content =>"text/html; charset=$charset"

It works great under standard obeying browsers.
IE still won't interpret the output as ISO-8859-8.

The server (Apache) is set to have as default 'UTF-8', and I
cannot change that.

Any ideas how to have IE supported? What is bugging IE
