To me, this sounds like that you haven't specified the right
"Content-Type" header. I assume you are using some standard encoding,
which is totally ok. However, your pages most probably use a
windows-specific charset (using some extra characters in the 0x80-0x9F

You can research the charset of your original pages and set the
"Content-Type" header accordingly. Getting rid of those special
characters would be the better solution, though.

Just some ideas. There might be better solutions...
