In html you should encode special chars, like é àand so on. Charset is the minor problem , i think. However you can try with UTF8

utf8 is the way to go
or if you don't want utf8 use latin1 (iso 8859-1) : http://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/ISO_8859-1

By the way, I did not have this confilct before I implemented jQUery and Ajax to load my pages. I was using the ISO-8859-1 , but now the accents are gone. Any difference there?
