And just what have you posted? The saved source, so we can view it. Yep,
it's all OK. What else did you expect?

What is screwed up, the encoding? If so:
- when viewing files locally, there's no server, just html off the disk.  
The only charset info the browser get is what you provide in the meta tag.  
So it is used and everything looks fine
- when viewing the file on a server, that server (apache? whichever.)  
almost surely sends encoding info IN THE HTTP HEADER. This setting  
overrides the meta specification, so if the server sends say iso-8859-2,  
your non-ascii chars will show up all wrong
