what should one use for a META tag - charset for a
North American audience:

<meta http-equiv="content-type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8">
or
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html;">
or
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=windows-1252">

or something "better"

Both charsets will work just fine. Another often used is iso-8859-1.
You should always define a charset in FP or other tools.
Your middle example is invalid as no charset is specified.

ISO-8859-1 *is* UTF-8 (a subset actually).

Google: "utf-8 vs iso-8859-1" and make sure you read at least the first 2-3
documents listed especially the DOCTYPE articles at listapart.
