I was transferring my web pages from the hosting site using IE's "Save as..." feature and I noticed in the
Save WEB page window under encoding it is set at "Western European (windows)" and all the choices from the drop down are everything but United States. What can I do to change this? Why is it as it is, Western European I mean.
This scares me :)

See if you have more options from the View menu under Encoding. Mine is set to Western European (ISO) by default. In the Save as for a web page, I had a long listing from Arabic to Vietnamese with the default encoding already selected.

The default for IE7 is "Unicode UTF-8" also known as "Universal Alphabet". You won't find "United States" as an option because we are referring here to an alphabet not a language, and the US uses the same alphabet as Western Europe. Having "United States" or "North America" as a choice would simply be duplicating what is already available under Unicode.
