Hi Sara,

I have a small explanation  to set up T3 with utf-8.

Furthermore perhaps 
is interesting for you.

Using HTML-Templates or other files with special signs may require the 
utf-8-fileformat (without BOM) but this wasn't part of your question 
because you seem to have only problems with RTE.

Try to follow my first Link and give feedback if anything changes.
