It seems that it uses windows-1252 rather than iso-8859-1.
iso-8859-1 can be a substitute for it, though.  The page is
displayed almost correctly for both the *w3m* buffer and Gnus in
Emacs 22 without doing anything for it.  However, I noticed it
is very bad in Emacs 21.3.

Setting w3m-current-content-charset is not a good idea.
Instead, try `C c' to specify the charset.

I'll look into this, after releasing emacs-w3m 1.4.4. ;-)
