How are you determining what encoding is used by the end file? If you're loading them into a web browser then the content type will be determined by the meta information. AFAIK the content type of a text file is what you say it is, not detected.

If you spot any bugs in my solutions, it's because I've deliberately left them in as an exercise for the reader! :-)
