No!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!   :-)

That's the whole problem, the above setting is overridden by the
apache server's setting:-

    AddDefaultCharset UTF-8

I want to know how to set up the apache configuration so that the
above setting is what is used by default but in one directory
hierarchy (which is actually a CGI script generating HTML dynamically)
the default charset is ISO-8859-1.
