header is automatically detected.

I was wondering, how could we work with the accents and not with the html
code of them, i have tried  yesterday to change the charset of the
/style/lang/es.xml to see  if it generates the html, it does but at the
time to open the html file in the browser, it gives me the autogenerated
code and no html page like it should be, so i changed it back to what it
was at the beginning, but still the same issue.
I would appreciate any light in this that i´m getting confused.
Thank you in advance.
