They are different.

If your app only uses "latin" characters, you could use one or the
other. Otherwise, you should use UTF-8.

But beware that mixing is not good, especially if you mix them in the
same document. Both encodings encode the same characters in very
different ways (except for standard ASCII, which happens to be encoded
the same). If you mix, you may run into trouble. You probably already
ran into trouble. ;-)
