Subject [users@httpd] Russian characters

Hi all,

I have a problem getting some httpd servers displaying russians characters.
I have different machines serving the same content (mounted via nfs).
- - All servers run httpd 2.0.52 and php 4.4.5.
- - The httpd and php configuration is synced over all servers.
Despite that, some of my servers display strange characters "?" and others...,
instead of cyrilic ones.

The HTTP header returned from a working and non-working server is the same :
  HTTP/1.1 200 OK
  Date: Mon, 12 Mar 2007 22:55:40 GMT
  Server: Apache/2.0.52 (Red Hat)
  Set-Cookie: 123Tlanguage=ru_RU
  Connection: close
  Content-Type: text/html; charset=utf-8

So : UTF-8...
But if I wget the page, I can see for instance :

Correct chars :
alert("Ð~_ожалÑ~CйÑ~AÑ~Bа, введиÑ~Bе Ñ~Aвой

Weird chars :
alert("¿ÞÖÐÛãÙáâÐ, ÒÒÕÔØâÕ áÒÞÙ ÛÞÓØÝ / ßÐàÞÛì");

I'm not a russian speaker, but I can tell that the encoding is not the same.

I have also checked phpinfo() which looks quite similar on non/working server, and
the $LANG env variable is "en_US.UTF-8" on all servers.

I don't know where to look precisely (and sorry if this is more php than http).
Thank you for your help !
