IE11 and Chrome different encoding

To be honest I've never been understanding encoding and such very well. Please help me out here. This piece of html:

<!DOCTYPE html>
    <meta http-equiv="content-type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8">
    <a href="javascript:alert('%C3%B6');">Click</a>

In Chrome it displays: ö that's what I'm expecting.

In IE it displays: ö and that's not expected and not the desired outcome.

How can I change my code to get the browsers to behave the same way?


You could try alerting the character itself, and not just the code, like: alert("ö")
