 There's no support for that apart from the machine.config/web.config
 May be it's time to add a couple of properties with the Encoding to be
 used when reading pages and writing the output.

+I think the most useful of the globalization stuff would probably be fileEncoding and 
+Culture. responseEncoding and requestEncoding influence only the look and 
+function of a web page. But fileEncoding and Culture are key to get the web form to 
+compile. For example, recently I tried to compile a web form with characters ?, which 
+is rendered by windows-1250 and iso-8859-2, and the compiler threw me a UTF8 decoder 
+error. (which makes sense since these aren't UTF8 characters) Culture is needed for 
+rendering numbers and the like. If you've got a label which is converted to a number 
+using the set culture (which default is Us-us or something like that) then the compiler 
+will throw a Formating error.
