| Isn't there any mechanism in HTML that allows multiple charsets?

No, there isn't.

The reason for this is that SGML (of which HTML is an application)
does not have it. Or, rather, SGML does have it in the form of
entities, which allows a document to include other documents, which
can have other encodings. HTML does not support this, though.

The situation in XML is the same as in SGML. The only difference is
that the behaviour described above is, as far as I can tell, not
required in SGML, while it is in XML.
