To be honest, I can not imagine a scenario, where I would need to change charsets on already generated document. Changing charsets means that the same codes will represent different characters. So always at least one half of the document will be ok and then other one will be screwed.

What about using utf-8? It makes sense to use it when you are working with different encodings. Just convert all "lower" encodings into utf-8 (if you can, use utf-8 for the pages where users enter data in different languages so data will be stored directly in utf-8 so you dont need to do any conversions on display).

If it is not the option, I would try to experiment with iframes.
