umlauts - german character set problem

i am publishing articles in german. but Ö,Ä,Ü all do not get displayed properly. For example Köln is displayed Köln .
In the head tag i tried charset=iso-8859-1 and it doesn´t work. Please detail what to do.  UTF-8 does not work in the first place.

This is the answer to your problem:

You just need to get the UTF-8 tag working correctly.  If you put the tag in correctly and it still doesn't work, then its likely your web server is configured incorrectly.  Post the URL of your site here.
