write russian chars to text ( html) file aaaarghhh

hello ,, does someone know how i can acomplish the folowing task ,,

i have a program with a HTML interface and i need to write Russian chars to
the generated HTML files
my database is unicode ( access 2000 ) the characters in the database are
perfect however when they arive in vb and written to the text file they are
transformed to squares and other garbage

i was so desperate that i tried it on a Russian version of windows but same
thing happens there

if i use a VB form i can set the charset to a control and it will appear in
Russian however writing to a text file will result in garbage in the file
when i open it in Notepad or the webbrowser

strange thingy is if i look on a Russian website it appears OK , if i save
this file local to my system and open it with notepad it is also OK ( win
2000 advanced american english )

so the problem is probably that the string var that holds the data before it
is written to the text file mixes things up ???

how to solve this ???
