Change XMLHTTP charset of opened file

I'm trying to create something like a remote include.

Apparently the code below does the trick, problem is that
I use spanish characters (á é í ó ú ñ) that are displayed
as ??? in the loaded page. Is it possible to fix this?

 ' Url of the webpage we want to retrieve
 thisURL = "http://hospitalia.com.mx/quien.html" 

 ' Creation of the xmlHTTP object
 Set GetConnection = CreateObject("Microsoft.XMLHTTP")
 ' Connection to the URL
 GetConnection.Open "get", thisURL, False

 ' ResponsePage now have the response of
 ' the remote web server
 ResponsePage = GetConnection.responseText

' We write out now
' the content of the ResponsePage var
 Response.write (ResponsePage)

 Set GetConnection = Nothing

It's really simple in PHP just using the code below.

Is there any ASP equivalent?
<?php include 'http://hospitalia.com.mx/quien.html'; ?>

Unfortunately, javascript Only uses Unicode/UTF-8.  Running anything thru javascript will create this problem.

You can include files in ASP like: <!--#include virtual="/global/header.asp"-->

Or <!--#include file="header.asp"-->

Problem is that <!--#include file=""--> can't handle remote files
