Well, actually I live in Ireland at the moment, :-) but yes, I did
change the charset in MoinMoin config to iso-8859-2.

Yes, that helped. At the end of the day, I don't *have* to use Czech on
those pages i.e. can get away with iso-8859-1, but how can I disable the
English for everybody, regardless of their client's preferences?
