    HTML does not define any particular character encoding to be used. It relies on the web server passing that information in the http header. The document might help you to find out, what it uses using a <meta> tag. Apart from that, you need to guess, or ask the author.
    That said, the canonical encoding is ISO-8859-1 but UTF-8 is also very common.
    Regarding your HTML editor: in a good editor you should be able to tell it, what encoding to read and save your file.
