    Looks like you may be using XHTML. Try:
    Code:
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
    <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.1//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml11/DTD/xhtml11.dtd">
    
    <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" xml:lang="en">
    <head>
    <meta http-equiv="content-type" content="application/xhtml+xml; charset=UTF-8" />
    ...
    </head>
    Or, for Latin 1 (English, Spanish, French, German, etc.):
    Code:
    <head>
    <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">
    ...
    <head>
    Make sure the font family being used also has the characters you need to be displayed.

    Also, see if browser encoding is set to utf-8 or iso-8859-1 with auto-detect off.

    Take a look at "HTML codes to put German characters on your Web page".
