Chromium (and so I would guess Chrome) does have a setting for
default encoding ― the default default is Windows-1252, so a
kludge would be for Norm to set that to unicode. This would mess
up viewing some websites that use Windows-1252 (rather than
iso-8859-1) without sending a content type. I don’t know how
often that happens.

A more convoluted (but more correct) strategy would be for the
user to set up a separate config direcotory $CFG in which
unicode has been set as the default encoding and then have mh
pass --user-data-dir=$CFG when calling chrome.
