The server sends "Content-Type: text/html; charset=utf-8" but there is no character encoding in the document itself, so when the document is opened from file the browser doesn't know which encoding to use.

There are a number of 0xc2a0 at the end of the text strings in the HTML document and when viewing them with a non-utf-8 encoding they show up as strange characters. 

You may use "View/Character Encoding/Unicode (UTF-8)" to specify the encoding manually.
Confirming this bug. 

When doing Save As->HTML, Firefox in many cases *adds* the calculated <meta http-equiv="content-type" content="text/html; charset=xxxxxxx"> line. I ran into a (separate) bug where it was doing that for a case in which the inferred charset was wrong due to server misconfiguration.

As far as I can tell this is a case in which it SHOULD be doing that, where doing it would solve the problem, but it isn't.
