utf-8 and iso-8859-1 not working?

Using eWebEditPro, quotation marks (")and dashes (-) are being
interpreted into “ and – respectively. In the browser,
these a both interpreted as question marks.

Here's the page's top info:

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN"
"http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd ">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml ">
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1"

I tried subbing UTF-8 in for iso-8859-1.

Anybody have any familiarity with this issue?

If I understand correctly, you have character
entities '&#8220;', '&#8211;', ... in the source code of the document. In
this case the encoding of the document is not relevant.

If they are then not displayed correctly, they might not be available in the
font you are using in the document (or more specificly, the version of this
font, that is installed on your system).

If you would provide an URL to the document or a minimal example of the
problem, we could tell you more (HTTP header could also be involved, if my
first guess was wrong).
