First your asp pages need to be saved as UTF-8. Add
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8" />
to the head section of the page.
See attached for an example.

If you have notepad, open your ASP page, do a file save as, use the encoding dropdown and pick UTF-8 and ovrewrite the existing file.
