A very good explanation of Unicode -- UTF-8 vs ISO 8859-x 2010-02-11 19:31 UTC
This solves a lot of problems I've had with web pages that are not of character set ISO 8859-1 western.
Some GUI web page generators now produce HTML files that are ment for UTF-8. These don't display well on a web server that is set to default character set ISO 8859.
The whole page may come up on a web browser such as firefox (not Internet Explorer) with just these three characters:

UTF-8 is newer and it may be a good idea to default to that.
