*sigh* Time for me to call it the day and go home, it seems. Opera 6.05/Win32
does *not* get it right if you have it on View -> Encoding -> Automatic detection.
Why I was fooled in the below message was that the Encoding setting seems to
stick even if I exit and restart Opera, that's why my test page seemed to be
working. If I turn it back to autodetect, it doesn't autodetect the UTF-8-ness.
(If nothing else this bumbling saga of mine illustrates how difficult it still
is to get all this "just to work".)

After some experimentation it seems that I blamed Opera 6.05/Win32 wrongly,
it guesses the charset right. But as pointed out by Tex, HTTP/HTML charset
ponderings are probably not Unicode issue as such, they are more a WWW issue,
sorry about the slight off-topicalness.
