Strange encoding behaviour

P: n/a
Good Morning,
I've the following problem :

I want to translate some page of my site using babelfish translator of
Altavista,
To avoid manual job I want to deliver a c# script that produce this
result.

I've putted this page on my site at the url
http://www.etantonio.it/EN/Economia/indexTest.aspx

////////////////////////////////////////////////////////
<html>
<title>Economy</title>
</head>
<body>
<p align="center">Economy</p>
</body>
</html>
////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

If I try to translate this using altavista, the result is directly
available at
the url http://babelfish.altavista.com/babel...indexTest.aspx
and it's working OK, the translation of Economy in French is …conomie
, the problem is in the first letter of …conomie
, the … is not well recognized instead by the following my c# script

///////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////
<%@ Page Language="c#" debug="true" trace="true"
ResponseEncoding="utf-8"%>
<%@ import Namespace="System" %>
<%@ import Namespace="System.IO" %>
<%@ import Namespace="System.Net" %>
<script runat="server">
void Page_Load(Object Src, EventArgs E )
{
String sAddress =
"http://babelfish.altavista.com/babelfish/trurl_pagecontent?doit=done&tt=url&intl=1&lp=en_fr &url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.etantonio.it%2Fen%2Feconomia %2FindexTest.aspx"
;
WebRequest req = WebRequest.Create(sAddress);
WebResponse result = req.GetResponse();
Stream ReceiveStream = result.GetResponseStream();
StreamReader reader = new StreamReader(ReceiveStream, Encoding.UTF8
);
String sHtmlTradotto = reader.ReadToEnd();
Trace.Write("sHtmlTradotto", sHtmlTradotto);
}
</script>
///////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////
whose result is available at the url

http://www.etantonio.it/Utility/Trad...FrRidotto.aspx

and basically shows that the … of …conomie is blanked.

How can I solve the problem and finally obtain this translation ??

I think the problem is not in the code because if I use it for this
other address string

String sAddress =
"http://www.etantonio.it/Utility/Traduzioni/FR.aspx" ;
Can you help me ???
Many thanks in any case ...
