I'm getting rather frustrated. I think my command of the english language is sufficient to comprehend a FAQ...
Kovid told you the answer that everyone uses - trial and error, but there are other methods. You could always ask the html author, check the http headers, etc. (Live http headers in FireFox - look for the Content-Type: text/html; charset= header) You could use a hex editor, look at the high bit characters, and get a table of encodings to match it up. In the end, you're probably back to try it and see what works.
