The W3C HTML 4.01 specification supports this:

2. A META declaration with "http-equiv" set to "Content-Type" and a
value set for "charset".
3. The charset attribute set on an element that designates an
However Links already has this among other HTML options:
[ ] Ignore charset info sent by server
Why not another option that would allow META declaration override HTTP
charset? Both options would have a similair purpose: to work around
problems (incorrectly specified charsets) at the server end.
Just my $0.02 (and I'm off to read Apache docs to find out how to
influence HTTP charset responce, since I previously relied only on META
