What happened was: a) A file was saved as XHTML with encoding UTF-8. b) The file extension is "html". c) The file is loaded locally from the filesystem and runs through IE's HTML parser (not MSXML). d) The HTML parser ignores the XML encoding declaration - it look for an optional META tag specifying the encoding and doesn't find it. e) With no information about the encoding, it falls back to whatever it thinks is best, on my machine to ISO-Latin-1. Fix: produce correct META tags. Inserting a <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8"/> will fix Eric's problem. So, as far as I understand the situation, this is almost expected behaviour: IE doesn't really support XHTML yet, so it will ignore XML encoding declarations when displaying XHMTL through it's HMTL engine.
