My friend just converted his high-profile website to using UTF-8
everywhere, and he told me that you need to specify the encoding in both
the HTTP headers and within the document for all browsers to fully "get"
that you really do want to use UTF-8.

So you need both
  Content-Type: text/html; charset=utf-8
in the headers and
  <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8">
within the HTML.
