This is a very short tip and one that you may well know, but since I have just run into the problem again, I thought it was was worth a mention. 

Do you ever see problems like this?  This when characters that are marked with diacritic signs (such as acute, grave, umlaut and carron) are retrieved from the database in ASP pages and they are not displayed.

This is caused by not saving the ASP page in UTF8

Once you have saved the ASP page in UTF8 format the page will display correctly.
