HTTP header [1] has priority to set codification, page headers [2] is
last option to detect codification. I think that web server is
enforcing ISO-8859-1 (AddDefaultCharset), and application wasn't
setting appropriately. (webserver will set only if application don't
do it)

[1] Content-Type: text/html; charset=UTF-8
[2] <meta http-equiv="content-type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8" />
