I'm not sure to fully understand your problem, but I guess it relates to 
displaying special characters in web pages. So here goes.

1) Always specify encodings in the web pages themselves. Here's a header 
section of a webpage of my site, to give you an idea :

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN"

<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" xml:lang="fr" lang="fr">
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />
<title>Microlinux - Solutions Linux et logiciels libres</title>

2) Edit /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf and try this option :

AddDefaultCharset Off

Hope that helps.
