Default apache special characters

Hello All

how should I solve the problem with international characters on the websites.
I recently moved site to new server and this problem started.

I reinstall locales and changed the apache2.conf AddDefault... with utf-8.

I had the problem few years ago but can not remember the sollution.
I only see blocks and not the special characters..

Many thanks!

Please put
AddDefaultCharset ISO-8859-1
in your Apache configuration and restart Apache.

Check the locale of the server (I think it's /etc/sysconfig/i18n)
Does the page use some Mysql database. If so, check also the collation of the db.
