Thank you. So the file i get when saving the page is a modified one. The workaround is then, if I understand well, to let web-sniffer check whether the server is forcing an unconsistent encoding:
| Content-Type: text/html;charset=ISO-8859-1
Then save the page...
| meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=windows-1252"
...and reset the charset to the value shown in the source code:
| meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8"
Then open this.
That's very useful!

Have a great day,
