A request to http://bmit.se/wget/ returns text/html document without 
specifying the charset (AFAIR, default is iso-8859-1).
Either your Server has to tag the response as utf-8 (Content-Type: text/html; 
charset=utf-8) or you have to specify utf-8 in your document header.

Or you specify --remote-encoding=utf-8 when calling wget.

Could you give it a try, maybe with -d to see what is going on.
