I have a webpage that has some characters that I would call Upper ASCII or extended ASCII, i.e. if you look a character in hex, the upper (x'80') bit is set

Examples are double quote marks that angle left or right, n with a tilde, letters with umlauts, etc

If I look at the page on my HD it displays fine, but if I look at it on the net all of these characters have a black diamond with a question mark

I think there is some statement I can put at the top of my page, to tell it to use the expanded character set, but what is it?
