As said several times before, this is only part of the story.
HTML 3.2 did not allow any other encoding than ISO 8859-1 (Latin-1);
so you have to use HTML 4.0, or a later HTML version.
Now, HTML 4 requires a document type declaration, cf.
You should also declare the language of your document, cf.
and the overall directionality, cf.
This means that your HTML source should start approximately as follows:
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01//EN"
<HTML LANG=ar dir=RTL>
<META HTTP-EQUIV="Content-Type" CONTENT="text/html; CHARSET=UTF-8">
<TITLE>((some meaningful Arabic page-title))</TITLE>
<LINK HREF="mailto:email@example.com" REV=MADE>
Btw., the page-title is also required by HTML 4. It will show up in book-
mark lists, and in answers from search engines; hence, it should be con-
cise and meaningful, even if read out of context. "Welcome to my homepage"
does not qualify; a better title would be "Otto Stolz: Homepage" (an
entirely fictitious example, though).
