UTF-8 vs. ISO-8859-x

first, I'd like to know which servermodel you are using. Is it php/mysql?
In that case try to look at it with a tool like phpmyadmin and check how the language symbol was written.
UTF-8 is your friend, even if English text does not seem to need it. You'll never know in advance if there won't be words with some special characters outside the Western European scope. (like Słownik polsko-niemiecki działający także jako słownik niemiecko-polski)
In dreamweaver, check the connection string. In my case it ALWAYS helps if I put something like:

$connection = mysql_pconnect($hostname_connection, $username_connection, $password_connection) or die(mysql_error());
//after this put
$result0 = mysql_query('SET NAMES utf8');
if (!$result0) {
die('invalid request: ' . mysql_error());
