Writing HTML pages in cyrillic


I'm trying to write some HTML pages in bulgarian using cyrillic alphabet. It works fine when I use a CMS, but doesn't work when I write the pages myself using an editor. When I use for example Kedit, the letters are correctly written in cyrillic. When I look the result on a web browser (which can read cyrillic), I only get ????????? every where. I also tried with Quanta, but I get the same result: writing goes fine, when I click on preview, I only get ?????????.

I tried with charset=windows-1251 and with charset=utf-8.

Hier is an example of an html page of mine:
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN"
<html dir="ltr" lang="bg" xmlns="" xml:lang="bg">
<title>Мила Родино</title>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />
<h1>До цкоро!</h1><br>
Документация на български език
I Only got it write with open office but I would like to work with a simple editor in order to do my layout myself.
here is the code from open office:
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN">
<META HTTP-EQUIV="CONTENT-TYPE" CONTENT="text/html; charset=iso-8859-15">
<META NAME="CREATED" CONTENT="20060830;23573000">
<META NAME="CHANGED" CONTENT="20060831;1300">
<P ALIGN=CENTER><B>Добре!</B></P>
<P ALIGN=CENTER><B>И сега?</B></P>
How may I work with a simple editor in order to have cyrillic letters in the source code and not those &#1089?!

I just tried both of your code sets. The first works; the second fails.

charset=iso-8859-15 is for Finnish; charset=iso-8859-5 is for Cryllic.

I made quite a lot of test and I realized that the problem comes not from the code but from the editor itself. I installed every components for bulgarian in KDE but it doesn't help. The only working solution so far is the use of mozilla composer.
