Not with the kind of explanation you provide above, I'm afraid.
Try to explain exactly what you are doing, what you expect, and what you 
get instead, then maybe someone will be able to help.
In any case, just "trying this or that" directive in Apache won't help, 
and will make everything even more confusing.
Your problem is probably not at the Apache level anyway, but somewhere 
in your Ajax stuff (which by the way is not a part of Apache).

First thing to try : create a normal, static html page, without any Ajax 
stuff in it, just standard html, but with some "accented characters".
Then call it up in your browser.  Does it display correctly ?
