Problem - Hebrew appears as gibberish

P: n/a
Hi everyone,
I made a web page in PHP, and included in it PHP file, which prints
Hebrew text. I used the web page to include other files, but only this
particular PHP file makes my Hebrew look like gibberish ("׳‘׳—׳¨
׳�׳™׳§׳•׳� ׳”׳“׳£ ׳‘׳™׳� ׳”׳“׳₪׳™׳�") even in the source code, and
only on the text he prints (I print Hebrew in the web page itself,
before and after the included PHP, and it works fine.)
What might be the problem?
Never happened to me before that the php code causes a problem like
that...
Please help,
Ofir.

Could you move your head to the side slightly? I'm trying to see the
relevant php code through my crystal ball, but your head seems to be in the
way.

Well, I wanted to know common causes, if there are.

Wrong charsets.

That's not it, because the charset is set in the web page that
includes the PHP file, which shows gibberish. The problem is not in
the html code, it's on the php code. The html code I get shows
gibberish too, so it can't be the html.
Anyway, it appears to be something really weird, because in the same
included PHP I deleted all code, and left only:

<?php
print "something in Hebrew";
?>

And it still showed gibberish. Never mind the problem, I just copied
the code to another file, named it in different name and it works.
Maybe it has something to do with my PHP Expert Editor crashing in the
middle of writing the file with the problem...
