zend server 7 and charset setting

Can't find out what to do to get my newly installed local web server (Zend Server 7) to show Swedish characters ( like Å, å, Ä, ä, Ö, ö) to show up correctly.

When using this code

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1" />
<title>Namnlöst dokument</title>
echo "Å, å, Ä, ä, Ö, ö [1]<br />";
echo "&Aring;, &aring;, &Auml;, &auml;, &Ouml;, &ouml; [2]<br /> ";

it prints this on the screen:

�, �, �, �, �, � [1]
Å, å, Ä, ä, Ö, ö [2]
What can be done to get it to show the characters [1] like the ones in [2]?

Default PHP5.4+ charset is UTF8 and that is sent via server headers.
