You should have HackContentType in the default etc/config.tcl also then (and the 4 encoding params set to utf-8). Not all browsers allow meta http-equiv to override HTTP headers.

What about people who run Oracle 8.1.7 and don't use UTF-8 because interMedia has problems with it?

Also Joel has experienced situations when AOLserver's system encoding wasn't set to utf-8. I've never experienced this with either 4.0.0 or 4.0.2. AOLserver 3.3.1ad13 had this at the end of modules/tcl/init.tcl:

encoding system [ns_config ns/server/[ns_info server] SystemEncoding utf-8]

so that the Tcl system encoding was set to ns/server/$server/SystemEncoding, defaulting to utf-8. This patch was in the ad13 part.
