I have already tried to include a meta tag to inform the

This is generally not enough -- the browser needs to know
what encoding the file uses before it starts reading the
file itself. As Ashwin Hirschi said:
Be sure to send the correct content-encoding (header) back

If you're using Firefox, you can see what content-encoding
is being sent to it by right-clicking the page, selecting
"View Page Info" and looking next to "Encoding:".
If you're using Apache and .htaccess files are supported,
you can control what content-encoding is sent by using a
line similar to
AddType 'text/html; charset=UTF-8' html
in the directory's .htaccess file. (The above line itself
won't work for you -- it's for static HTML files. I don't
remember offhand what the right way to do this for CGI
