    On your top of your HTML page add Unicode meta tag. IE automatically converts it to Unicode for you.

    For Unicode use
    <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset="iso-8859-1"></meta>

    For Latin use
    <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset="Latin-1"></meta>
