- To be sure...
<meta http-equiv="content-type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />
is that all to do to benefiet of utf-8 ? So there is no need to convert
special characters to a numeric equivalent?
And what with " and ' if I want them curled?

Notetab has only limited support for Unicode: it can display an Unicode
(UTF-8) file, but will do so in read-only mode. So adding the <meta> tag
won't help very much.
If you want special characters in your HTML code, though... the most
common ones (like curly quotes) are available in the Win-1252 code page.
Basically, if you can type them in Notetab, they are in Win-1252.
So, a better option while editing would be to use the following <meta> tag:
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=windows-1252" />
If you want to convert the page to a different encoding before uploading
to your server, you can use an external tool to do so. The free HTMLTidy
has this ability, among other things. Don't forget, though, that
*ideally* you should set up your server to send the correct HTTP
headers, instead of using the <meta http-equiv> tag.
