Encoding problem in Eclipse 3.3 with static HTML page caused by a single russian word

In Eclispe 3.3 I have a simple static HTML page with the following charset setting :
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />
All textes are german with HTML entities, but noiw I have to insert a single word in russian.
While saving the document in eclipse, it says :
"Some characters can not be mapped using "Cp1252" character encoding. Either change the encoding or remove the characters which are not supported by the "Cp1252" character encoding".
I pasted this mentioned russian word from babylon. It is possible to change the encoding of this word or goes wrong? The problem is, that I cannot save the document with this word in it.

    Thanks that solved the problem, I didn't know about the file properties.
    Another way would be to store the one word as:
    with charset iso-8859-1
