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"
# CSS
ExpiresByType text/css "access 1 month"
# Javascript
ExpiresByType application/javascript "access plus 1 year"
</IfModule>

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 http://www.iis.net/learn/extensions/url-rewrite-module/importing-apache-modrewrite-rules tells how to Import Apache mod_rewrite Rules.

Expires by equivalent http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc770661%28v=ws.10%29.aspx
favicon.ico place it in the root folder of the website
default encoding
<system.webServer>
		<staticContent>
			<remove fileExtension=".html" />
			<mimeMap fileExtension=".html" mimeType="text/html; charset=UTF-8" />
		</staticContent>
	</system.webServer>
