How to modify webconfig file in WebServer 2008

I am new to the server side modification in server 2008;  I want to define a global charset and do other modifications to webpage response header.  I am not sure exactly how to modify the webconfig file.  I would like to add the following to the webconfig file too:

here is the .htaccess version

AddDefaultCharset utf-8
<IfModule mod_expires.c>
# Enable expirations
ExpiresActive On
# Default directive
ExpiresDefault "access plus 1 month"
# My favicon
ExpiresByType image/x-icon "access plus 1 year"
# Images
ExpiresByType image/gif "access plus 1 month"
ExpiresByType image/png "access plus 1 month"
ExpiresByType image/jpg "access plus 1 month"
ExpiresByType image/jpeg "access plus 1 month"
ExpiresByType text/css "access 1 month"
# Javascript
ExpiresByType application/javascript "access plus 1 year"

How can I get this into the webconfig file for web-server 2008

Thanks for your help

You need to be careful about doing that.  Make a backup copy of your web.config file.    ".htaccess" is for Apache and not IIS.  This page tells how to Import Apache mod_rewrite Rules.

favicon.ico place it in the root folder of the website
