Strange characters when HTML activated

Hi, last one for today, promise.
When I activate HTML for a news poster, and they use certain characters, the characters are displayed strangely.
For example a right single curly quote ’ displays as â€™
Or a degree symbol ° displays as Â°
I realize these are "special" characters, but is there is a way to have these displayed normally without having to turn off HTML?

I could recreate this problem in IE and Chrome, firefox seemed to do it as well but as the page finished loading it corrected the characters and displayed them properly.
If you view this page in IE or Chrome it'll display them incorrectly.
But if you view this page
They display fine.
Try adding the following to the head section of your page
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8">
Hopefully that should correct it.

That's curious, as I generally use Firefox, and this is where I notice the problem.
I tried inserting the code, but my web design software inserts this upon publishing, and I ended up with
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=ISO-8859-1">
If I delete that and replace with
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8">, the problem goes away.
At least I have a clue, and will take it from there.
