Everyone but you can see:
Internet Explorer À = À à = à
Firefox A` = À a` = à

No, these settings apply only the encoding (charset) of the
page. IE uses the Latin font for UTF-8. Define Times New Roman
as Latin typeface - and Arial Black as Greek and Cyrillic
typeface. Then Greek and Cyrillic letters will be displayed
in Times New Roman for charset=utf-8 and in Arial Black
for charset=ISO-8859-5 or -7.

IE 7 does this; IE 6 did not - another difference between
IE 7 and IE 6.
