Russian language in Dreamweaver

I need to set up some pages in Russian, but they display differently on several servers.

This is what I did:
I switch my keyboard to Russian
I switch DW to Cyrillic
I create a document with the Cyrillic settings.
In the head appears <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=windows-1251" />
I write some letters in Cyrillic.

If I preview the document, all is OK. Pump it up on one of my web servers, just either squares appear or question marks with a black diamond background.
On another web server everything looks fine.

Russian pages display fine on my PC!

Looking into the code, these things display correctly: &#1086;&#1088; this one &#1100;&#1087;&#1072;&#1086;&#1074;&#1086;&#1088;&#1086;&#1088; doesn't.

What's the trick?
