    The meta tag in the page head tells the browser to use the ISO-8859-1 character set:
    HTML Code:
    <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">
    But it seems your page is edited and saved using character set UTF-8. Good browsers (in default setting) will recognize the used character set and ignore the meta tag. IE (in default setting) will use the meta tag even if it is set to auto. So in IE strange letters will show in non English text.

    Just change that meta tag to:
    HTML Code:
    <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />
