Use any UTF-8 aware editor of your choice. I prefer vim, which I usually 
run in a UTF-8 aware terminal (mostly putty, run on Windows). Or you 
could edit the file remotely and then upload it to your server. For 
example Notepad in Windows XP can save in UTF-8. In Windows I still 
prefer vim, though.
