which browser you are using ? kindly attach the HTML rendered by the browser (view source of the page)

That's because your browser isn't identifying correctly the special non-english characters. You see, browsers were initially made for the English language. To avoid that, you should always use encoded HTML characters in your page instead of the plain non
english characters. Those characters are standard, so you shouldn't have any issues with any browser.
So, for instance, in your HTML instead of putting á, you should put
á. Something like:
Juan, dónde estás? (Juan, dónde estás?)
Here's a list of all enconded HTML characters:
You'll only need encoded characters for non english symbols.
