I can't seem to save my javascript in utf-8 format.  I have implemented meta tags within the html page that the script is used in.  But the javascript itself when changed in notepad or dreamweaver saves the characters as garbage...so i can't succesfully change the script to the language i need which is GREEK...
Below is the result of what is looks like saved... a bunch of ??? marks and other garbage inserted into the linking.

Have you tried wrapping the script with a CDATA declaration?

META tags are used for the browser to read back the end result.  Therefore they won't help you to save data.

Notepad is especially bad at doing work in alternative character sets.  If you do use Notepad, you need to ALWAYS use the SAVE AS menu option, then change the Encoding field to UTF8 (it will always revert to ANSI for some reason even if it opens a UTF file).

When editing in Dreamweaver, the same principle applies.  Somewhere in the Save As dialogue there is an option to save as UTF8.  

Without the file being saved as UTF, then the META tags won't work correctly for the reader.
