Well, entities.conf hasn't been touched since installation and contained
no entities for extended characters (we use DokuWiki 2007-06-26b).

I tried adding entities from
http://www.cookwood.com/html/extras/entities.html to entities.local.conf
and changed file format to UTF-8 (in UltraEdit-32, ASCII -> UTF-8), no
improvement (even worse actually, extended characters in regular text
were garbled). The first bytes (BOM?) in the file is FF FE
(UTF-16/Unicode). If I do a "view source" in IE on any page in our
DokuWiki it is also FF FE.

I've tried finding a tool to identify and/or convert to UTF-8 without
BOM, but haven't found one.

There are no problems with extended characters in "normal" text, just in
