DataAssist and Charset


I just run into a problem that i believe somewhere i need to tweek DataAssist's code in order to fix it but i need to know where that is.

For some reason DataAssist creates pages with "charset=iso-8859-1" which conflicts with Unicode Language such as Greek Language.

Therefor when i completed DataAssist wizzard and it started creating my pages DWCS4 started poping up msgs about the encoding and my Greek Writing.

Where do I change DataAssist's code to make it create UTF-8 pages and not iso-8859-1 ?
It is useless to me with iso encoding. And if I may ask why you don't have UTF-8 encoding as default ? Most current providers that updated to 4.1 and 5 of MySQL databases have default encoding UTF-8 where 2 years ago all had ISO-9959-1.

Please answer me as soon as possible cause i can't create any page with your tools if I can't have UTF-8 encoding created pages from wizzards. Cause it means i have to manualy alter the encoding and then replace all the ?!?!?!??! marks on page with the greek language i want to put which is more effort than needed since i allready write the text in the wizzards.

I suppose all your products create ISO-8859-1 encoding so plz give me a solution for WEb and E-cart products since i have bought Web Developer package and im planing on using all its features.
