    I can see all the special characters (e.g. é) correctly.

    Do you use also a localized version of WP? Is the localization's encoding the same as the settings in the blog's Options > Reading?
    I can see that on your blog you use iso-8859-1 but WP's default is utf-8.
    So, if you are using a localization file that has iso-8859-1, but your blog's setting is utf-8... the accented characters won't display correctly.

    I'm using a pc on my local network with wordpress install on it.
    my blog is encoding utf-8 and all my post are ok, but when I change the title in the code with dreamweaver it's not not ok I have special caracter.
    I try to put iso-8859-1 but it's getting worst

    OK. I got it.
    1. Do not use DW.
    2. When editing the template files and typing/writing something in another language you have to do it with an editor that has utf-8 support! (I don't use DW, so I don't know if you can set it like that, but the best thing is to use a simple text editor with utf-8 support.)

    Textpad is listed among the good text editors:

    If it is only a few words in the sidebar - you could try the Theme Editor from the Presentation panel.
