When you set the language encoding of Web page that contains multiple languages to UTF-8, and then view the page in a Web browser, incorrect characters may be shown.


To work around this problem, follow these steps:

  1. Open your multilingual Web page in Word.
  2. On the File menu, click Properties.
  3. In the Document Properties dialog box, under For Saving This Page, click to select the correct language set your page contains, and then click OK.

NOTE: This procedure works when your page contains text typed in a different language in addition to English. If your page contains English and two or more additional languages, there may not be a language encoding option available to correctly show all of the text when viewed in a Web browser.


Microsoft is researching this problem and will post new information here in the Microsoft Knowledge Base as it becomes available.
