That's no way to treat a friendly volunteer mailing list like this one!

As I said, you have to tell the browser what you're up to.

Also, I just checked the link (shame on me), and you're not using UTF-8
at all. You're using some weird Windows-xyz or ISO-8859-xyz Greek
codepage from the previous millennium. (which obviously my browser
didn't know, it thought you were using ISO-8859-1, because that's what
my browser does, which you weren't)

So: tripple-check that

 * your file is <insert encoding here (aka UTF-8)>
 * Python knows that
 * the web browser knows that
