I tried your example (see right here-under) but it does not work.

	<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01//EN"
	  "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/strict.dtd">
		
	<html lang="fr">

	<head>
	<meta http-equiv="content-type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8">

	<title>Exemple de document HTML 4.01</title>
	</head>

	<body>
	<h1>Un document français</h1>

	<p>L'élève va à l'école et ceci est écrit en Français!</p>

	</body>
	</html>

For each French specific character, I get question marks in a diamond  
(lozenge); see enclosed picture (here-under on Mac, in attachment on PC)


Thank you for your time.
