The CharSet the characters were written in differs from what is sent and 
displayed by the browser. Make them match and all is well. (That is: 
either change the CharSet the server sends or change the CharSet the web 
pages are written in.) You can check the character encoding of a page in 
your browser, usually at View/Encoding or so.
BTW: this is not CentOS-specific.
