Totally wrong approach modifying the zpublisher encoding here.  As said
you have two options:

- <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />
  with in your HTML

. <tal:call define="dummy python: request.RESPONSE('content-type',
'text/html;; charset=utf-8')" /> within your template
And if I were to use DTML?



DTML? In a similar way...You know  dtml-let or something like that.
You know that stuff like 'request' 'context' etc. is available
in PythonScripts, ZPT and DTML is some way...everything is the same object.
