Here on a Mac with Firefox 18.104.22.168, I have the same effect. While the
character encoding is specified as UTF-8 in the header of the page, the
page text itself shows garbled HTMl entities. The same also happens on a
Windows XP machine with Internet Explorer 7.0. Actually, in the browser
it looks exactly like what happens when I type UTF-8 in an editor and
then save the file as ASCII ...
