As I am a Slackware Linux user I don't know if this will work for you, but e.g. to display Arabic characters of Google News in Arabic:
http://news.google.com/news?ned=ar_me
in Firefox's menu I choose:
View => Character Encoding => Unicode (UTF-8)
and the page is correctly displayed

About aMSN I can't help you because I don't use it.
