Unicode error in 2.0.7

I have just installed 2.0.7 beta, but when I converted my old CD 1.0 database all danish letters æøå were displayed wrong (with characters such as Ã¥). I tried to change the <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8"> to something else, which didn't help. However, when I changed it back to utf-8 it suddenly displayed correctly. I have no idea what triggered the difference, since the utf-8 was there to begin with.
I did the same on another template. Switched from utf-8 to iso-8859-1, saved it, and then switched it back and suddenly it was fixed. So now it works, but still, shouldn't it work form the beginning?

Other than that, great product.
