You could try Gnus 5.10.  There has been quite a lot of changes in
this area since 5.9.

I agree with François that it's a mess.  It don't really blame the
documentation -- it's more the design that's hard to understand and
use, i.e. the multibyte vs. unibyte distinction and character-set
vs. coding-system vs. mime-charset.

Also, stuff like CCL and MULE isn't particularly well documented.
