Here it is:
<!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">
	<head>
	 <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html;charset=utf-8" />

That may not be enough. I'm not sure exactly how IE handles it, but if the server is sending a charset with the HTTP Content-Type header, that may be overriding what you specify there. You may want to use the header function to set it manually, just in case.

MIME headers override <meta> headers, at least they are supposed to.
