That's true the content-type is not specified in the http-header.

This work, though i must do this for all pages.

It tried to set w3m-language to nil and `w3m-coding-system-priority-list'
to iso-8859-1  but the pages are still displayed using shift-js.

All the other coding system related variables are set to iso-8859-1,
except w3m-input-coding-system which is set to binary 
and w3m-output-coding-system which is set to ctext.

So I have no clue as to where this shift-js comes from.
